An Evening with the Fresnel Lens
July 3, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every 6 weeks that begins at 8:00 pm on Sunday, happening 2 times
One event on June 16, 2018 at 8:00 pm
The Pigeon Point Lighthouse is currently under repair, but that doesn’t mean that the First Order Fresnel Lens can’t shine! The Fresnel lens, the original lighthouse beacon, will light up once again from its temporary home in the Visitor Center. As dusk settles, the 24 beams of light provide a dramatic glimpse of how the lighthouse once guided ships passing by this rocky coastline. Bring a flashlight and join us for a unique experience.
Please note the lighthouse will NOT be lit. The original lighthouse beacon, the First Order Fresnel lens, will be lit but in its temporary location inside the Visitor Center. The lighthouse is being repaired and is currently not accessible to the public.
