- This event has passed.
The event has been canceled due to expected inclement weather.
The Crooked River Lighthouse will be hosting a Full Moon Lighthouse Climb and Sacred Drum Ceremony on Saturday, September 10, from 8-10 pm in Carrabelle, Florida. Visitors can enjoy this opportunity to see the gorgeous natural surroundings of the St. George Sound and Carrabelle Beach under the glow of the full Harvest Moon or Corn Moon. Paul Eagleheart from the Lipan Apache Tribe will be conducting a Native American drum ceremony during the event. Guests can also enjoy the fire pit (weather permitting). Bring a chair and enjoy the evening.
In honor of the Harvest or Corn Moon, the lighthouse will be hosting an informal drumming circle during this event. Anyone that has a drum is welcome to bring it and join in. The Harvest Moon is the full moon nearest the start of fall or the autumnal equinox. This full moon name is attributed to Native Americans because it marked when corn and other crops were harvested.
In addition to the informal drum circle, Paul Eagleheart from the Lipan Apache Tribe of Texas will be joining this event. He will be doing a sacred, Native American drum ceremony in honor of the full moon. Paul Eagleheart has done many ceremonies for causes including protection of sacred sites. He will begin the ceremony with a prayer song and will be explaining several Native American traditions.
While at the lighthouse, guests can also visit the free Keeper’s House Museum and browse inside the Lighthouse Gift Shop for unique nautical gifts and souvenirs.
