The Annual Lighting of the Lighthouse!
Join the Barrier Island Parks Society and ring in the holidays!
🎄There is nothing like the Annual Lighting of the Lighthouse! On one special night a year the lighthouse beacon shines into the night sky, surrounded with beautiful holiday lights and merry cheer as happy voices are heard inside and out, mingled with festive live music, laughter, and the relaxing sound of surf breaking on Boca Grande Pass Beach. The gift shop in the museum will also be open from 5:30-8:00 p.m. to help you with some of your holiday shopping. We have amazing sterling silver jewelry, hand-painted lighthouse ornaments (limited supply), great selection of history and nature books for the bookworm on your list, and some beautiful artwork from local artists, to name just a few. Proceeds from sales help support the lighthouses and four local barrier island state parks — Gasparilla Island, Cayo Costa Island, Don Pedro Island and Landbase and Stump Pass Beach. Gates open at 5:30 pm and the lighthouse will be lit at approximately 5:45 pm with live music by Kenny Rose, complimentary appetizers and wine ($2 per glass)
We hope you’ll share the magic of the season with us at the Port Boca Grande Lighthouse & Museum, and make this experience a lovely addition to your holiday tradition each an every year!
