October & Halloween Dark of the Moon Ghost Tours! Climb the St. Augustine Lighthouse at night by glow of lanterns

Dark of the Moon Ghost Tours is the only ghost tour in St. Augustine with access inside the St. Augustine Lighthouse at night. Lit by only lanterns, guests can climb the 219 steps to the top of the Lighthouse tower for a paranormal experience like no other.

Guests will hear ghost stories from a tour guide on the first part of the tour, and then explore on their own. Participants have access to the grounds, the Keepers’ House (including the basement), the Lighthouse tower, and the nature trails.

“We talk about the tragic accident during the construction of the Lighthouse and the Keepers (and their families) who have lived and died here,” explained Kelcie Lloyd, Special Programs Manager.

The St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum has been featured on TAPS/Ghost Hunters, CNNParade MagazineFox News and The Weather Channel.

When arriving, guests each receive a glow stick, and have the option of renting an Electromagnetic field (EMF) meter.

“The glow sticks are a frequent target for some of our ghosts,” Lloyd said. “Glow sticks will float from around guests’ necks. We have seen them pop off the holder and fly across the room.”

All proceeds from the Dark of the Moon Ghost Tours go to fund the Lighthouse Archaeological Maritime Program at the Museum. Advance reservations are encouraged. Tickets are available at staugustinelighthouse.org

October dates are listed below for Dark of the Moon Ghost Tours and Investigation-Only Tours. For a more intimate experience with the paranormal, considering book a private tour. Guests can bring along equipment or spend the whole evening in just the basement.

Bernstein’s Broadway on October 13 at Del Webb Auditorium

First Coast Opera kicks off its 2018-19 season with Bernstein’s Broadway, a concert highlighting the musical legacy of iconic American composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein.  Part of the international Leonard Bernstein at 100 celebration, Bernstein’s Broadway will feature hit tunes from his wildly successful Broadway musicals performed by guest artists in the Lightner Museum "swimming pool", 25 Granada St., in downtown St. Augustine.  

The program will feature selections from West Side Story, Candide, On the Town, Trouble in Tahiti, and Wonderful Town.  Returning guest artists include Fort Lauderdale soprano Elena Galván, who sang the role of Kay in last season’s The Stranger’s Tale, Tampa mezzo soprano Sarah Nordin, who sang on last season’s Opera’s Most Haunting Melodies concert, University of Florida professor Matt Morgan, who last sang with FCO in the 2015 Opera Paris concert, popular local singer Carrie Thornton with accomplished local music director Curtis Powell accompanying on piano.  They will be joined by St. Petersburg baritone Luis González and Tampa bass Tyler Putnam each making FCO debuts.  Leonard Bernstein’s music resonates with both classical and musical theater audiences.  

According to FCO Artistic Director Curtis Tucker, “Bernstein’s song-writing is extraordinary.  From a performer’s standpoint, they can be quite complicated, but for the audience, his songs are tuneful, clever, and memorable.”  The program will be performed twice, at the Lightner Museum Swimming Pool in downtown Saint Augustine on Thursday, October 11 at 7:30pm and at the Del Webb Auditorium in Nocatee on Sunday, October 13 at 7:30pm.  Tickets to the Saint Augustine performance are $35 for adults and $10 for students. They are available at www.firstcoastopera.com or by calling (904) 417-5555.
