Saturday, October 28 from 3:30pm – 6:30pm, bring the kids to Pere Marquette Beach for “Trick-or-Treating at the Lighthouse!”
Climb the 48’ tall Muskegon South Pierhead Light and experience the unique feeling of traveling back in time. Up two spiral staircases and a shipman’s ladder, this ironclad tower built in 1903 boasts unparalleled views from the lantern room at the tower top. Knowledgeable, passionate volunteer Lighthouse keeper docents share the history of Muskegon’s lighthouses and other facets of the area’s maritime importance. This final tour of 2017 is held on Halloween, when volunteers will dress up in costume to welcome Trick-or-Treaters at the lighthouse tower base. Kids in costume (11 and under) will climb for free in the company of an adult and regular admission for the autumn tower tours is only $4 for adults and $2 for children 11 and under. Military and veteran admission is $3, and kids must be 3’ tall in order to climb. Sturdy shoes are recommended, and no reservations are necessary. The tour lasts about 15 minutes if there is no wait upon your arrival and the last tour is offered 15 minutes prior to closing. Parking is available at the beach or alongside Margaret Drake Elliot Park. Walk between the NOAA and USCG stations on the public visitor walkway to gain access to the pier. Memberships and private tours are available by e-mailing email@example.com or by calling 844-MLIGHTS.
Free Trick-or-Treating; Tours for Adults: $2-$4
