Luminary Night This Wednesday!

ST. AUGUSTINE, FL - The grounds of the historic St. Augustine Light Station and the surrounding neighborhood will glisten with the magical glow of thousands of candles during Luminary Night, Wednesday, December 2, from 6 until 9 p.m.

The maritime museum has never charged admission on Luminary Night; however, this year they are asking that you help them help. Bring in a non-perishable food item and the Lighthouse & Museum will help get your donation to the people who need it the most. All food items will be donated to St. Johns County food banks.

“There is entertainment, exhibits, and -- as always -- giving back; this event is a celebration of community and a traditional beginning to the holiday season,” Beau Phillips, Public Relations Coordinator, St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum said.

Luminary Night will feature local musicians providing live entertainment, refreshments, holiday arts and crafts, and you can even sit with Santa Claus. Visitors can also climb the lighthouse tower and enjoy a breathtaking view of the City of St. Augustine aglow with the “Nights of Lights”. (For their safety, children must be 44 inches tall to climb the tower.)

In addition to Luminary Night activities, the Lighthouse gift shop will be open offering unique nautical and lighthouse gifts.
