Tenth-Annual "Festival of Lighthouses" Display at the Maritime

 I thought it would be a worthwhile event to share the news around on.Tenth-Annual "Festival of Lighthouses" Display at the Maritime...

 

Maritime Aquarium, 10 N Water St, Norwalk, CT, $12

 

 

This holiday season, walk a trail illuminated by 24 lighthouses—creatively built using everything from stone, gingerbread, toilet paper tubes and sugar cubes from France – in the 10th annual “Festival of Lighthouses” at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.

 

From Nov. 19 through Jan. 16, 2012, Aquarium visitors can follow these homemade beacons through the galleries and then cast a vote for their favorite.  The lighthouse with the most votes wins $1,500.

 

You may wander through the display free with Aquarium admission.

 

 

This is a must see event!  "Entries in the display this year include a lighthouse made out of toilet-paper tubes, another made of welded copper, a Cat in the Hat-themed light, a light whose shingles are made from men’s neckties and another made of gingerbread. Other entrants took on the challenge of building a detailed replica of a real lighthouse, including the Greens Ledge lighthouse in Norwalk, the Black Rock lighthouse in Bridgeport and the Staten Island (N.Y.) lighthouse."

 

 

The “2011 Festival of Lighthouses” is free with Maritime Aquarium general admission, which is $12.95 for adults, $11.95 for seniors (65+) and $9.95 for children 2-12.
