The 20th Anniversary Little Red Lighthouse Festival will be hosted in conjunction with the Historic House Trustâ€™s Fall Festival. The festival will focus on Manhattanâ€™s only remaining lighthouse and activities will include tours of the lighthouse; readings of the childrenâ€™s book, â€œThe Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridgeâ€; fishing clinics; live music and a theatre performance; an interactive reptile experience and activities for kids of all ages; arts and crafts, festival food and more!
Each fall, the Little Red Lighthouse Festival commemorates this unique and historic setting located just below the George Washington Bridge. Many organizations, community partners, and city officials collaborate to produce the festival which is attended by hundreds of families who enjoy playing and picnicking along the parkâ€™s pristine shoreline. Fort Washington Park in upper Manhattan was the first public green space that NYRP Founder Bette Midler targeted for her initial restoration and greening efforts.
