Complimentary souvenirs will be given at each Challenge location.

Bonus Lights include:

  • Millers Island Lighthouse
  • Sandy Point Shoal Lighthouse

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