The holiday season arrives at the Montauk Lighthouse this weekend, starting on Saturday with the annual Lighting of the Light from 4:30 to 7 p.m. This year's event is in honor of Ed Michels, a senior harbormaster and a longtime master chief in the Coast Guard, the lights will be lit at 5:15 p.m., but a much earlier arrival is recommended for this popular event.

There will be hot cocoa, courtesy of Hampton Coffee, candy canes for all, and music by Sarah Conway and the Playful Souls. On Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. the festivities continue with a visit from Santa, holiday treats, and music by Sarah Conway and the Holiday Trio, from 1 to 2 p.m.

Admission is free, but donations will help support the Lighthouse and the many programs the Montauk Historical Society puts on there.
