Hook Light­house is set to host its third an­nual Har­vest Moon cel­e­bra­tion on Satur­day, Septem­ber 22. Vis­i­tors can en­joy watch­ing the sun­set and the har­vest moon rise over Hook Penin­sula be­neath the pro­tec­tive beam of the world’s old­est in­tact op­er­a­tional light­house. From 5:30 p.m. the light­house vis­i­tor cen­tre will open espe­cially late, and in­vites vis­i­tors to come along and find a spot on the straw bales around the fire-pits on the light­house lawns and watch na­ture at its best dur­ing the au­tumn equinox, en­joy some tra­di­tional har­vest fare.

There will be en­ter­tain­ment with Cap­tain Hook and Pi­rate Pat and vis­i­tors can take a seat around the fire pits and en­joy sto­ries of our an­cient Celtic her­itage from the sto­ry­teller Baya Salmon-Hawk.

A photography com­pe­ti­tion also forms part of the cel­e­bra­tion event. Any­one who wishes to have their Har­vest Moon im­age cap­tured at Hook Light­house con­sid­ered for the com­pe­ti­tion, they can email their im­age with their de­tails to info@hookher­itage.ie by 5 p.m. on Septem­ber 26.
