Halloween Full Moon at Crooked River Lighthouse
October 28, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Crooked River Lighthouse will be hosting a fun Halloween-themed celebration at the Full Moon Event on Saturday, October 28, from 6:00-8:00 pm in Carrabelle, FL. Visitors can enjoy the gorgeous natural surroundings of St. George Sound and Carrabelle Beach under the glow of the full Hunter’s Moon. Guests are welcome to come dressed up in their favorite costume (pirates and coastal themed costumes are especially encouraged). Candy will be given out and prizes for the top costumes will be awarded.
Visitors can experience a fun performance by the Forgotten Coast Dancing Witches, a group of local ladies who dress up, dance, and raise money for local animal shelters. Guests can also enjoy an after-hours visit to the Keeper’s House Museum and see the exhibit for the lighthouse’s original, historic Fresnel lens. Attendees may also enjoy the glowing bonfire in the park (weather permitting). There will be delicious all-beef, grilled hot dogs with the fixings by Don’s Dogs available for purchase. Bring a chair and enjoy the evening. Those who would like to help offset the additional costs for this after-hours event and support the lighthouse are welcome to make a donation at https://www.crookedriverlighthouse.com/full-moon-events/ or at “the gate”.
At the Full Moon event, evening climbs are also available for those brave souls who are bold enough to venture to the top of the tallest Forgotten Coast lighthouse. Climbers will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the bay. Evening climbs cost $10. All climbers must be at least 44 inches tall. There will be a time limit for viewing from the top. Timed tower climb tickets are required for those who wish to climb the lighthouse tower during this event. Timed tickets are available at https://www.crookedriverlighthouse.com/full-moon-events/ or by dropping by our gift shop. Advance ticket purchase is strongly suggested as slots may sell out.
Those who would like to get out and about a little earlier are welcome to come to Crooked River Lighthouse Park for the free Halloween Hoot-N-Howl event hosted by the Carrabelle Chamber of Commerce. This fun event from 4:00-6:00 pm will feature a hayride, candy, kid’s games and more.
