Sanibel Island's Baileyfest has become an Island tradition. Each year, Sam and Francis Bailey - owners of Bailey's General Store,
host a traditional Fall Festival complete with hayrides, games and live music - oh, and of course - food. In recent years it has really come into it's own with all the merchants of the Bailey's Center, where it takes place, joining in the fun.
As an added bonus this year, there is a raffle with prizes worth over $1700! It is quite something when the local businesses donate so much for a community party. Sanibel Island is and continues to be a unique place and Baileyfest demonstrates that it isn't just about the Sanibel Beaches and shells.
More than 40 different door prizes - valued at more than $1,700 - will be awarded at the 24th annual Baileyfest. This is a Sanibel Island event not to be missed.
Baileyfest 2009 will be held on Sunday, Oct. 25 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Bailey's Center, located on the corner of Periwinkle Way and Tarpon Bay Road.
