It's “Lighthouse Challenge of New Jersey” weekend this Saturday, Oct. 16 and Sunday, Oct. 17.
The public is invited…and challenged…to visit all participating 12 lighthouses and life saving stations over the weekend and help raise funds for continued lighthouse preservation.
The lighthouses participating in the Challenge encourage the public to take advantage of this special weekend to financially support and preserve the maritime history of New Jersey.
You can begin the Challenge at any of the lighthouses, and purchase a tri-fold souvenir pamphlet for $1.00. Get this stamped at each lighthouse as proof of your visit, and commemorate your participation in the event.
Hours of operation for each lighthouse can be found on the lighthouse and museum websites listed below, and at www.lighthousechallenge.org.
