Travel to Duluth Minnesota and enjoy the 9th Annual Twin Ports Lighthouse Days August 4-7, 2011 at the Lake Superior Maritime Visitor Center in Canal Park. This event will feature lighthouse films and history walks which will take place inside and outside the museum. All of the programs are free and open to the general public and we’re sure our guests at The Firelight Inn on Oregon Creek Bed and Breakfast will be taking advantage of this festival.
This special “Twin Ports Lighthouse Days” is a celebration of the five distinctive lighthouses of the Twin Ports and the lighthouses of Lake Superior. We need to remind you, however, that the lighthouses in Canal Park are unfortunately not open to the public, although exterior viewing and photographs are available. This annual event is held around the anniversary of August 7th, 1789 which is the date President George Washington signed the Ninth Act of Congress federalizing our nation’s lighthouses.
The pier history tours with Park Rangers will rediscover the history of Duluth’s three lighthouses, the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge and the piers. This is just one of the fun activities to take part in while you are in Duluth Minnesota. There is hiking, biking, sailing, charter boat fishing, Vista Boat excursions, walking along the Lake Walk and skipping rocks in Lake Superior!
