*Early Bird Special. Visit participating lights on Friday, September 20, 2019

Complimentary souvenirs will be given at each Challenge location. You are welcome to visit any number of lighthouses along the Challenge route, but you will have to visit all mandatory stops to be able to proclaim “I’ve seen the lights!” and collect a specially designed souvenir to mark your accomplishment.

Bonus Lights include TWO beautiful locations:

  • Millers Island Lighthouse
  • Blackistone Lighthouse Replica

Bonus Cruise: Thursday, Friday, and Monday. Details coming soon.

Visiting these lighthouses is not counted toward event completion, but will take Challengers to three more beautiful Bay locations, earning them extra event souvenirs!

Mark your calendars now!
