Lighthouse 5k and Night Fest
In an effort to continue our support for the St. Augustine Lighthouse the League hosts an annual 5k & Fun Run! The inaugural race in 1983 was originally titled the “Bud Light Twilight Lighthouse Run.” Hosted by RaceSmith, Inc. the Lighthouse 5k is a chipped race that serves as a qualifier for the famed Gate River Run. The Fun Run is a true treat for the little runners! Don’t miss the awards ceremony and FREE Night Fest following the race on the beautiful Lighthouse grounds. This year the League is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Frensel Lens restoration project. The Night Fest is free to the community and is not dependent on race admission. Each year the staff at the Lighthouse provides activities for the kids such as face painting, arts and crafts, and more! Don’t miss the opportunity to support the Lighthouse and climb the tower for FREE!
Feel the Wheels
In 2012 the League in partnership with tag! Children’s Museum of St. Augustine began the interactive event Feel the Wheels. In the spirit of play-based learning the league provides trucks, buses, race cars, tractors, boats and even a helicopter for kids of all ages to explore! Vehicles vary year to year but the fun never stops. Admission is FREE for adults. Bring the kids to climb into the driver’s seat, honk the horn, and sound the alarm!
