A new event that was added to the lighthouse program in 2020 was the Lighthouse Carnival which took place on August 29, 2020. This year’s Carnival will be held August 28, 2021. Admission and transportation can be purchased via the CLLS Reservation System.
Entertainment will be provided by the Scott Van Teeffelen Band. The film showing in the gallery will feature the Graham Family in the 1980 CBC production about the life of a lightkeeper.
Corn on the cob, fish and chips, salad, and other items will be part of the food line up with a BBQ available for people doing their own cooking.
