Celebrate the Beaver Moon!
At this month’s Full Moon event, the Crooked River Lighthouse will have a gifted musical group, The Bog Lilies. They are a talented group of performers who focus on vocal harmonies mixed with a unique blend of instruments including banjo, mandolin, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and cajone (a wood percussion instrument). They cover songs in folk, bluegrass, country, and southern rock genres.
A TRAIN STOP food truck will be set up with delicious food for purchase.
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 may also enjoy the glowing bonfire in the park (weather permitting). Bring a chair and enjoy the evening.
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 GET TICKETS (select "Full Moon Event Gate" for the date of your choice) or donate in person at "the gate".
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.
Blues & BBQ - TUESDAY, DECEMBER 26, from 6 to 8 p.m.
This special outdoor event will feature live Blues music, a glowing bonfire at the fire pit, and a delicious BBQ meal. Visitors can enjoy this opportunity to see the gorgeous natural surroundings of the St. George Sound and Carrabelle Beach under the evening sky.
Powerful musical duo, Blues Meets Girl, is a collaboration of British Blues veteran Mr. Downchild and Texas born singer/songwriter Kasimira. These two bold artists weave their separate influences and experiences together to create down-home, smokin’, sexy blues music at its best. Listeners can feel and relate to the soulful and passionate songs they write for and about each other, as well as their unique renditions of the classics by Muddy Waters, Etta James, Big Mama Thorton, Elmore James and Sonny Boy Williams. Blues Meets Girl is bonafide Blues thru and thru.
Tickets are $17 if purchased by December 18 or $20 after (if available) and include live music, bonfire, a delicious BBQ plate, and museum access. (Climbs are not included in this price.) LINK TO PURCHASE COMING SOON
