Open Lighthouse Tower Climbs 2021
The Village has not yet made a determination on holding Open Lighthouse Tower Climbs for 2021, due to the uncertainties from the COVID pandemic. The Parks, Recreation, Facilities & Lighthouse Committee is planning to review the Village's ability to have tower climbs at a meeting this spring.

Tower Climbs for private groups can still be arranged based on the Lighthouse Keeper's availability. Groups can only include individuals who live within the same household. Tower climb charge is $15.00 per adult (ages 12 and up) and $7.50 for children (ages 6-11) with an $80.00 minimum. Tower climbs are not available for children under the age of 6.
