2017 marks the 150th Anniversary of Confederation here in Canada. The East Point Lighthouse also has the distinction of being “Canada’s Confederation Lighthouse” having been the only Lighthouse in Canada that was built in 1867 and still operates today.
Although we will be celebrating this milestone all season, how about joining us on July 1, Canada Day for a fantastic concert headlined by PEI’s own “The East Pointers?” They are currently on tour across Canada, United States and Europe. Check them out on Youtube for taste of talent! We will also be cutting and sharing an enormous birthday cake all day.
July 2 also sees another concert with the stage shared by four different groups of local entertainers, and possibly a visit from Mr. Alexander Beaton, the first lighthouse keeper, with some words of wisdom to impart.
Since the Lighthouse opened in 1867, we have decided to reward visitor number *1867* each month of our season with a beautiful framed print of the Lighthouse to take home and enjoy.
Come and visit our iconic landmark which has protected East Point since 1867, have a stroll and a picnic on the grounds, enjoy our new signage, our crisp new flag, improved parking, comfy deck chairs for a rest or quick photo op. Check out our bird watch tower, a terrific vantage point to spot rare and common birds, with East Point enjoying a reputation for a hot spot for migrating pelagic birds.
