Barrier Island Parks Society Lighting of the Lighthouse

On Saturday, December 9th, 2023, the Annual Lighting of the Lighthouse took place in Boca Grande, Florida. Attendees journeyed to the southern tip of Gasparilla Island and enjoyed a Christmas concert by Rob Rolleri with appetizers prior to the event.

As dusk fell, the crowd hushed and the Port Boca Grande Lighthouse was transformed into a beacon of seasonal spirit.

This annual event serves as a fundraiser for the Barrier Island Parks Society (BIPS). BIPS manages and operates three historic sites, supports four state parks, manages two gift shops, a bike and kayak rental program at Cayo Costa, Beach Ambassador, Light Keeper and Bird Stewardship programs and much more. BIPS has many exciting educational programs and events slated for the upcoming year that they directly support and are eager to help those new to the island reconnect with nature at all ages.
