People who take the Piedras Blancas Light Station tour Aug. 9 will get special “Peek at the Past” glimpses of period-costumed volunteers portraying life at the scenic site during the early 1900s.
The re-enactment tour is in tribute of National Lighthouse Day, which honors the signing of the Lighthouse Act by President George Washington on Aug. 7, 1798.
The living-history tour is offered for the regular tour fee of $10 for adults, $5 for those ages 6-17, and no fee for visitors 5 and younger.
Participants should meet at the former Piedras Blancas Motel, 1 1⁄2 miles north of the light station, by 9:45 a.m. Tours last about two hours and include the historic lighthouse, support buildings, wildlife viewing, and spectacular scenery.
