National Lighthouse Day
National Lighthouse Day

On Sunday, Aug. 7, the Cape May Lighthouse celebrates National Lighthouse Day. This annual holiday was established in 1989 to “honor the beacon of light that, for hundreds of years, symbolized safety and security for ships and boats at sea,” according to the National Lighthouse Society. We’re proud to celebrate the 1859 Cape May Lighthouse as part of this annual tradition from 9am to 2pm on the grounds of the Lighthouse and invite you to join us! The Coast Guard Auxiliary will be on site, and yard games, a craft fair which includes crafts for kids, and visits from some scaly and furry friends, courtesy of the Wetlands Institute and the Cape May Zoo, will make the day one to remember for the entire family.
