July 16 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The Crooked River Lighthouse in Carrabelle is hosting a Full Moon & Sunset Lighthouse Climb on Tuesday, July 16 from 7:30-10 pm. Visitors can climb to the top of the tallest lighthouse on the Forgotten Coast, Crooked River Lighthouse, to see breathtaking views of the bay with the sun setting and the full moon.
For the July full moon climb we have exciting live music out of Tallahassee featuring Afro-Cuban drumming by Master Yazid along with several of his fellow drummers. Yazid Johnson has played in professional orchestras, is a jazz musician, has performed at the Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, and for former presidents and has been an instructor and leader for the FSU African Drumming Ensemble.
Enjoy this special opportunity to see the gorgeous natural surroundings of the St. George Sound, Carrabelle Beach, and Dog Island, under the glow of the setting sun while listening to the sounds of African-Cuban drums with this special Crooked River Lighthouse evening climb. Guests can also enjoy s’mores around the new fire pit. Cost is just $8. Music will start at 7:30 pm. So be sure to come early if you’d like to experience the music. The museum and gift shop will also be open. All climbers must be 44 inches tall.
