Maine Open Lighthouse Day will open 23 lighthouses to the public up and down coast


SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine — Twenty-three Maine lighthouses will be open to the public as part of Maine Open Lighthouse Day.

The Coast Guard, American Lighthouse Foundation and Maine Office of Tourism are sponsoring the event on Saturday. Officials say the event is the largest of its kind in the country.

The lineup of lighthouses includes some that are not normally accessible including Owls Head Light, Bug Light in South Portland, Monhegan Island Light, and the tower at West Quoddy Head Light. The open lighthouses stretch from Cape Porpoise to Lubec.

Saturday is also the day of the Maine Lighthouse Ride. More than 1,000 cyclists will ride up to 100 miles as part of the event.
