Crooked River Lighthouse: Full Moon Climb
February 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Crooked River Lighthouse will be hosting a Full Moon Lighthouse Climb on Wednesday, February 16, from 6:00-8:00 pm in Carrabelle, FL. Visitors can enjoy this opportunity to see the gorgeous natural surroundings of the St. George Sound and Carrabelle Beach under the glow of the rising full moon. If the night skies are clear enough, you might even be able to spot Dog Island!
At this month’s Full Moon event, the Crooked River Lighthouse will have a gifted musical group, The Bog Lilies. The Bog Lilies are a talented group of performers who focus on vocal harmonies mixed 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.
Guests can also visit the free Museum and browse inside the Lighthouse Gift Shop for unique nautical gifts and souvenirs. Visitors can also enjoy the glowing fire pit (weather permitting). Bring a chair and enjoy the evening.
The climb to the top of the tallest Forgotten Coast lighthouse rewards bold climbers with breathtaking views of the bay. Cost is $8 for adults and $3 for kids. All climbers must be at least 44 inches tall. Due to the popularity of the Full Moon Climbs, advance reservations are required for those who wish to climb the lighthouse tower during this event. Call 850-697-2732.
A limited number of climbers (max of 7) are allowed at one time. There will be a time limit for viewing from the top. Guests who would like a more leisurely climbing experience are welcome to enjoy one of the daytime climbs available every Wednesday through Sunday. Masks are welcome but not required.
