The Point Arena Lighthouse Wind & Whale Celebration returns on Saturday, April 18!  Come watch the charming gray whale mothers and calves swim by the point, so close you can sometimes hear them breathe.  Turn around and look up at the amazing kites that will fill the sky above the Lighthouse grounds.  We welcome back both our migrating gray whales and the always entertaining Berkeley Kite Wranglers to celebrate the Spring breezes and our favorite marine mammals.   Local whale experts and gray whale census takers Scott and Tree Mercer will be on hand with displays of baleen whale artifacts and to answer your questions about the marine mammals that visit the waters off the Lighthouse peninsula.  Visit our Whale Watch Room  and enjoy the interactive touchscreen kiosk showcasing the marine mammals and other residents in the ocean that surrounds the Lighthouse.  The Lighthouse Gift Store will be offering sale prices on whale related gifts and other items.  Other activities and attractions may be added to this great Spring celebration, visit this page regularly for updates.  This annual event is part of the Point Arena Almost Fringe Festival. which will feature a wide variety of  live music, street performers, special events, entertainment, food, and other surprises. Be sure to visit downtown Point Arena as part of your day on the coast!

A big Lighthouse thank you to B. Bryan Preserve for having the Kite Wranglers stay in their Carriage House, and to Pier Chowder House & Tap Room for feeding them!
