Little Red Lighthouse Festival
Scheduled: September 30 at 12pm
The Little Red Lighthouse Festival will be closing out the summer season on a high note. The event, which pays tribute to the last standing lighthouse in New York City, takes place a bit further up north in the neighborhood of Washington Heights. Lots of activities and workshops are planned for the day including educational presentations by none other than the Urban Park Rangers. There’ll also be guided visits to the interior of the lighthouse, children’s book readings, fishing clinics, live music, tasty treats, and activities for the whole family! The festival is held in Fort Washington Park by West 181st St. and Plaza Lafayette.
