The annual Lighthouse Festival is taking place this weekend, from Friday to Sunday people are able to take in the sights of the shoreline’s treasured lighthouses. Chances to view the eleven Door County lighthouses will be offered as usual, and the festival is even expanding. Door County Maritime Museum Deputy Director explains that two lighthouses in Kewaunee County and one lighthouse in Brown County will be included.
The Kewaunee Pierhead Lighthouse is one of the sites where tours are offered for the first time. Robin Nelson, a chairperson of the Lighthouse Committee, says the tours will allow people to see the new updates that have been recently added to the lighthouse.
Algoma will also get in on the action, as people can head to their visitor center to take part in that portion of the festival. People can’t physically get up and close to the lighthouse, but Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ken Weinaug points out the stop into the visitor center is worth it.
Although many tours are sold out, you still can find some spots open for other excursions online.
