Attend Heceta Head Lightstation’s Victorian Christmas Open House
Heceta Head Lightstation is celebrating 21 years of the Annual Victorian Christmas Open House on December 10th & 11th and 17th & 18th from 4 to 7 pm. Come check it out and enjoy the 2000 new LED lights that will cast their warm welcoming glow on the beautiful rugged coast.
The Queen Anne style Keeper’s House has been decorated inside and out by volunteers and Florence Area Rotary Club, OverLeaf Lodge and Spa, Yachats Chambers of Commerce and Yachats Presbyterian Church will be providing warm drinks and treats. Each evening local performers will share holiday favorites and Santa will be stopping by to hand out candy canes and receive Christmas lists from children of all ages.
Visitors are encouraged to take a nighttime walk to the lighthouse, so bring a flashlight! This is a great opportunity to watch the lighthouse beams rotate overhead - truly a magical experience.
Entry to the Keeper’s House is free but donations are gladly accepted. Parking is available at the Heceta Head Lighthouse State Scenic View Point, just below the Keeper’s House, and a shuttle bus will take visitors from the park right to the front door. Or bring warm, rainproof clothing and a flashlight so you can enjoy the beautiful walk up from the beach to the festivities. Parking at the viewpoint is $5 per vehicle.
You can support the open house by entering the holiday raffle for a chance to win a free night’s stay at the Bed & Breakfast as well as great prizes from local artists and businesses. The Lighthouse Gift Shop will be open and filled with special lighthouse gifts for your Christmas shopping.
