Celebrate Halloween at the Full Moon Event at Crooked River Lighthouse

The Crooked River Lighthouse will be hosting a fun Halloween-themed celebration at the Full Moon Event on Saturday, October 28, from 6-8 pm in Carrabelle, FL.  Visitors can enjoy this opportunity to see the gorgeous natural surroundings of the St. George Sound and Carrabelle Beach under the glow of the full Hunter’s Moon. Come dressed up in your favorite costume (pirates and coastal themed costumes are especially encouraged) and candy will be given. Prizes will be awarded to the top costumes.


Visitors can also have an after-hours visit of the Keeper’s House Museum and see the new exhibit for the lighthouse’s original, historic Fresnel lens. Guests may also enjoy the glowing bonfire in the park (weather permitting). Bring a chair and enjoy the evening. Those who would like to help offset the additional costs for this after-hours event and support the lighthouse are welcome to make a donation either via https://www.crookedriverlighthouse.com/full-moon-events/ or at “the gate”. 


While at the Full Moon event, evening climbs are also available for those brave souls who are bold enough to venture to the top of the tallest Forgotten Coast lighthouse. Climbers will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the bay. Evening climbs cost $10 for adults (age 13+), $5 for youth (6-12 yrs) and are free for those 5 and under.  All climbers must be at least 44 inches tall. Timed tower climb tickets are required for those who wish to climb the lighthouse tower during this event. Timed tickets are available at https://www.crookedriverlighthouse.com/full-moon-events/  or by dropping by our gift shop. Advance ticket purchase is strongly suggested as these tickets may sell out. 


A limited number of climbers (max of 8) are allowed up at one time. There will be a time limit for viewing from the top. Guests who would like a more leisurely climbing experience are welcome to enjoy one of the daytime climbs available every Wednesday through Sunday. Masks are welcome but not required. 


Crooked River Lighthouse is located in Carrabelle, just west of the Carrabelle Public Beach Park at 1975 Hwy 98 W, Carrabelle.
