  • Luminary Night at the St. Augustine Lighthouse is a family-friendly tradition during St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights. On the evening of Wednesday, December 5, 2018, the Lighthouse grounds will open for an evening celebration that will delight both young and old. This popular event is a wonderful opportunity for visitors to get a taste of the holidays, St. Augustine-style. The event takes place from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

    The St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum goes all out for Luminary Night, offering children’s activities and holiday crafts, yuletide refreshments, and live music, including a string quartet inside the Lighthouse tower.

    Guests also get a close-up look at the St. Augustine Lighthouse’s spectacular holiday decorations and lighting displays. Nautical ornaments are donated by people from all over the country to grace the Christmas Tree set up in the Lighthouse Keepers’ House, and another tree, covered with glowing white lights, is set up inside the Lighthouse tower itself. Guests can climb the Lighthouse tower to see St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights from the top – it’s a spectacular view!

    The St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum has a couple of new experiences that guests can enjoy: the Legends of Light exhibition and the Maritime Archaeology & Education Center, which has special viewing spaces of the archaeology conservation lab and a View-From-the-Top Experience.
