Join the free fun and participate in the return of this popular Fall Harvest event at Tawas Point State Park and Lighthouse area! It is always a great weekend to take in some Fall color, do some bird watching, or amuse yourself with people watching, since costumes are welcome throughout the entire event. You will even get to see the giant pirate ship “docked” at the flagpole area near the Lighthouse, as it makes its way to shore from Tawas Bay or Lake Huron….that will be a great spot for photo ops!
