Full Moon Events

Worm Moon SUNDAY, MARCH 24, 7-9 pm 

The Crooked River Lighthouse will be hosting a Full Moon Event on Sunday, March 24, from 7:00-9:00 pm in Carrabelle, FL. Visitors can enjoy the gorgeous natural surroundings of St. George Sound and Carrabelle Beach under the glow of the full Worm Moon.

Visitors can also have an after-hours visit in the Keeper’s House Museum and see the exhibit for the lighthouse’s original, historic Fresnel lens. Guests can listen to live music with Boats A Rock'n, a gifted trio will be performing a wide range of upbeat, toe-tapping tunes spanning musical styles from reggae, folk, jazz, rock, blues as well as a few originals. This lively group features singer songwriter, Susan David on acoustic rhythm guitar, harmonica and lead vocals along with Terry Koral on lead guitar and vocals and David Riggs on bass guitar.  Guests may also enjoy the glowing bonfire in the park. Bring a chair and enjoy the evening. 

 While at this Full Moon event, evening climbs are also available for those brave souls who are bold enough to venture to the top of the tallest Forgotten Coast lighthouse. Evening climbs cost $10 for climbers (age 13+). Timed tower climb tickets are required for those who wish to climb the lighthouse tower during this event. Timed tickets are available at GET TICKETS or by dropping by our gift shop. Advance ticket purchase is strongly suggested as these tickets may sell out. 

Those who would like to help offset the additional costs for this after-hours event and support the lighthouse are welcome to make a donation either in advance at DONATION or donate in person at the event.
