Independence Extravaganza Recap

What a great time was had by all who attended our Independence Extravaganza at the Sodus Bay Lighthouse Museum!

This three-day celebration included a Red-White-and-Blue-themed Kiddie Parade, a Pancake Breakfast on the Bluff, the Lighthouse 5-K Run, the Lighthouse Art & Craft Show, and the kick-off of our Summer Concert Series by Gap Mangione Big Band. 

Nearly 3,000 visitors enjoyed the events and the Lighthouse Museum during the Independence Day weekend.

Hope to see you all at the Sodus Bay Lighthouse celebrating Independence Day in 2018 from Tuesday, July 3 through Sunday, July 8.
