Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and the Shell Factory & Nature Park wants to make it the best day of the year for moms and grandmas.

The North Fort Myers attraction will offer free admission to the Nature Park for moms of all ages on Mothers Day Sunday with a special family package at the Fun Park also available.

There also will be a special Mother’s Day Buffet, 20 percent off all jewelry, and entertainment on the Swamp Patio from 1 to 7 p.m.

For those who want to treat mom to a meal, the buffet will be offered in the Dolphin Room. There will be herb encrusted roast sirloin at the carving station, baked stuffed fish, a pasta station with alfredo, marinara, garlic and oil, cheese sauce and more, an assorted meat and cheese platter, fruit, salads and desserts, as well as chicken fingers for children.

It will be $17.50 for adults and $8.50 for kids 12 and under.

Then on Memorial Day, May 28, the Shell Factory will hold its annual Memorial Day event from noon to 4 p.m.

“We’re putting a lot more emphasis on veterans this year,” said Rick Tupper, marketing director and CFO of the Shell Factory. “They will get into the Nature Park free and two-for-one rides on the Zip line.”

As an added bonus, Santa Claus will make an appearance from 1 to 3 p.m. There will also be live music from Chuck Peterson, a holiday barbecue menu outdoors, 10 percent off all merchandise in the Beach Shack and lots of contests including putting, sack races, watermelon eating and hula-hoop, along with face-painting and a balloon man.

The Shell Factory will partner with the Southwest Florida Military Museum, which will have a display.

“We will also promote the service clubs in the area, they will have free booths to promote themselves,” Tupper said.

The Shell Factory is at 2787 Tamiami Trail North.
