With beach balls being hurled in the air and dozens of Pink Shell Beach Resort guests standing in the octopus-guarded pool, the Island Hopper Songwriter Fest wrapped up a week of music with a performance from musician Jimmie Allen Sunday on Fort Myers Beach.

With hundreds of people with tickets at the Pink Shell to see Allen, the country music star entertained the crowd, opening up with his hit song “Make me want to.”

The timing of Allen’s performance was just right as a major rainstorm touched down on the island about 35 minutes after the “Dancing with the Stars” cast member started singing.

The Island Hopper Songwriter Fest brought musical performances to Fort Myers Beach restaurants all weekend following stops during the week on Captiva Island and Fort Myers.

The Island Hopper Songwriter Fest was put on by the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau, billing the festivities as the largest songwriter festival in Southwest Florida.

More than two dozen performers played sets on Fort Myers Beach over the weekend at venues including Cabanas Beach Bar and Grille, Matanzas on the Bay, Nervous Nellie’s, Pierside Grill and Famous Blowfish Bar, Pinchers Tiki Bar and Grill, as well as the Yucatan Beach Stand Bar and Grill.
