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 firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. on September 26.
