10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Barnegat Lighthouse State Park and the Friends of Barnegat Lighthouse celebrate the annual event. Children will be able to earn a Junior Lighthouse Keeper Certificate by coming to the Visitor Center and answering questions on the specific characteristics and history of the lighthouse.

An 8-foot bronze statue of a lighthouse keeper will be dedicated. There will be no charge for children ages 14 and younger to climb the lighthouse on National Lighthouse Day.

National Lighthouse Day is observed annually on Aug. 7 to honor the beacon of light that for hundreds of years symbolized safety and security for ships and boats at sea.
