We had over 600 vehicles come through and help us celebrate the holidays and we packed the van full of donated canned goods.
TONIGHT, we will light our luminaries and we ask you to share your photos on social media (either Facebook or Instagram) beginning at 6:30 PM! Remember to use the hashtag: #Luminary2020!
We have sold out of luminary kits and we ask everyone to pick up their pre-purchased luminary kits today before the social media festivities!
Luminary Night at the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum is a family friendly tradition during the Nights of Lights festival. This year it will be a two-part event on December 1st and December 3rd. On December 1st at 7:00 PM, we will be hosting our first ever drive-through event in our parking lot where we will have various festive stations set up along the way for families to enjoy. This will be Holiday-themed with elves, holiday carolers and the opportunity to pick up pre-purchased luminary kits. Families around the community will light their luminaries at 6:30 PM on Thursday, December 3rd to be shared via social media through the hashtag #Luminary2020. This year has been hard on many in our community and this is a way to bring some light and joy to holiday season.
The luminary kits will go on sale on Sunday, November 1st and are available for purchase through the Museum Gift Store and the Gift Store website. Each kit has 10 luminaries featuring holiday and Lighthouse themed silhouettes and cost $10. For more information about Luminary Night, please contact Adrienne Gonzalez at 904.829.0745 ext. 220 or by email at agonzalez@staugustinelighthouse.org.
In the spirit of giving, a suggested donation of a non-perishable food item can be dropped in our festive collection container as you drive by! All the donated items will go to the St. Francis House Crisis Center.
