On Wednesday, Aug. 7, kids can climb Absecon Lighthouse for free (with an adult) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in honor of National Lighthouse Day. But that’s not all — there will be a range of activities on the lawn from 1-4 p.m. including corn hole, frisbees and a 30-foot sprinkler to run through. Additionally, Hayday Coffee will serve their specialty brews.
Then from 3:30 to 6 p.m., NJ Researchers of Paranormal Evidence will fill you in on the ghosts of the lighthouse with stories and paranormal evidence.
Lastly, enjoy a sunset wine tasting with live tunes by Groove Heart from 5-7 p.m. Tickets are $25 per person for the wine tasting, which goes toward lighthouse preservation. Absecon Lighthouse is located at 31 S. Rhode Island Ave., A.C. AbseconLighthouse.org.
