SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 from 8-11:30PM
The Crooked River Lighthouse in Carrabelle is hosting another exciting Full Moon & Sunset Lighthouse Climb
Visitors can climb to the top of the tallest lighthouse on the Forgotten Coast, Crooked River Lighthouse, to see breathtaking views of the bay under the glow of the sunset and the rising full Harvest moon. Enjoy a special opportunity to see the gorgeous natural surroundings of the St. George Sound, Carrabelle Beach, and Dog Island, under the night sky at this special Crooked River Lighthouse evening climb.
In honor of the Harvest or Corn Moon, the lighthouse will be hosting an informal drumming circle during this event. Anyone that has a drum is welcome to bring it and join in. There will be a few provided so anyone interested is welcome to try their hand.
The Harvest Moon is the full moon nearest the start of fall or the autumnal equinox. This full moon name is attributed to Native Americans because it marked when corn and other crops were harvested. In addition to the informal drum circle, Paul Eagleheart from the Lipan Apache Tribe of Texas will be joining this event. He will be doing a sacred, Native American drum ceremony starting at 11 pm in honor of the full moon. Paul Eagleheart has done many ceremonies for causes including protection of sacred sites. He will begin the ceremony with a prayer song and will be explaining several Native American traditions.
Cost is just $8. The museum and gift shop will be open, and guests can also enjoy s'mores around the fire pit. All climbers must be 44 inches tall.
Crooked River Lighthouse is located in Carrabelle, just west of the Carrabelle Public Beach Park. 1975 Hwy 98 W, Carrabelle. For more information, contact the Museum and Gift Shop at 850-697-2732.
