Michigan’s majestic lighthouses will be the focal point of a new summer festival in Muskegon. Hosted by the Michigan Lighthouse Conservancy and held in conjunction with National Lighthouse Day, the Muskegon Bright Lights Festival will take place at the lighthouses near Pere Marquette Beach from noon to 4:00pm August 5-7. The festival will feature live music on the pier, modern dance, chalk art and sandcastle-building contests and tours of both the Muskegon South Pierhead Light and Muskegon Breakwater Light. The event will mark the first time the Muskegon Breakwater Light has ever been open for public viewing. Programing for the three-day festival is still in the planning stages, but everything will be available free of charge with the exception of climbing the South Pierhead Light. Those tours will be offered at the normal price of $4.
