Society to host annual lighthouse event Oct. 6

ROGERS CITY — A tradition of 16 years will continue in October.

The annual Night at the Lighthouse will take place from 6:30-9:30 p.m. Oct. 6 at 40 Mile Point Lighthouse, located on US-23 North seven miles north of Rogers City.

“The lighthouse will be open for tours and will be decorated with fall decor. The fog building will open and serving spiced cider and cookies,” organizer Barb Stone said.

The event is hosted by the 40 Mile Point Lighthouse Society, organizer Debbie Stiller said.

Stone said the evening will start with a performance by a barbershop quartet.

“(It will be) followed by the acoustic musical jam headed up by Al Gross and it’s all free,” Stone said.

She said for the acoustic jam anyone can bring their instrument along to play.

The Kiwanis Club fish shack will be there to sell its fish sandwiches, she said.

“It’s absolutely a good time. We have a good crowd every year. Also, we like to tell people to bring warm clothes just in case. We always warn people be prepared, you never know what it’s going to be like (weather),” she said.

Stone said it’s been a popular event for many years because it’s low key and no pressure.

“People are always interested in the lighthouse. They love the music. It’s just a good time,” she said.
