For nearly 30 years, spring has meant the opportunity for you to see Door County's lighthouses like you have never seen them before. The 29th annual Door County Lighthouse Festival gets underway on Friday with the opportunity to see Door County's lighthouses by airplane, by boat, by bus, and even by kayak. As is the case with the Chambers Island and Plum Island Lighthouses in Door County and the Kewaunee Pierhead in Kewaunee County, this is your only opportunity to see these structures up close as they are usually closed to the public. Tickets for select tours remain on sale with all sales supporting the Door County Maritime Museum and Lighthouse Preservation Society. If you cannot attend this weekend, the museum added the Fall Lighthouse Festival a few years ago and offer a similar selection of tours. Tickets are on sale for that festival too which takes place from September 30th to October 2nd.
