Christmas at the Lighthouse

Saturday, December 1st from 3-6 pm
It’s that time of year again. The holiday decorating has begun. Be sure to join us on Saturday, December 1st from 3-6 pm for our annual Christmas at the Lighthouse event.

Santa will be on hand. Be sure to visit Santa’s Workshop in the Fog Signal Building where the kids can decorate a cookie, visit the hot cocoa bar, make a snowflake  ornament, a snowman cup and a candy cane.  In the Lighthouse be sure to venture to the second floor to try your hand a morse code and knot-tying.

The lighthouse will be decorated with period holiday decor and you will be greeted by the lighthouse keeper and others in period costumes. Hear the 1899 pump organ played by organist Ann McInnis. Climb the tower for a magnificent view of Lake Michigan.
