Calling all acolytes. Sunday August 17 is the day for you. Do you enjoy an afternoon concert? Do you enjoy perusing or purchasing lighthouse themed art? Do you want to climb 69 steps and view Lake Erie from atop a lighthouse tower? Do you enjoy museums that share maritime histories? If your answer is 'yes' then a visit this Sunday to 129 Second Street in downtown Fairport Harbor between 1-6pm will allow you an opportunity to experience all these possibilities.
The Fairport Harbor Lighthouse and Marine Museum will be hosting its third annual free concert and art festival. This major fundraiser for the Fairport Harbor Historical Society is the result of three random acts of kindness from local organizations. First WRUW-FM 91.1 of Cleveland Ohio will be providing four free musical acts that day. Second the amphitheater at the base of the lighthouse hill is made available for free by Lake Metroparks and its Outdoor Education Division. Finally the Lake Humane Society will be on site to share in the event. The FHHS will be sponsoring the art festival featuring lighthouse themed lithographs and watercolors from NE Ohio artist Bill Csatary. Bill was a local educator from the Parma Schools as well as a reknown maritime artist whose gallery quality renderings have been featured throughout Ohio for many years. Bill will be on hand to sign any purchase Sunday afternoon. For the usual donation fee visitors may climb the Lighthouse Tower and visit the keepers dwelling museum from 1-6pm.
