Full Moon Beach Stroll

Once a month, as the full moon glows, it seems safe to venture out into the dark while the moon makes shadows. You can still smell the earth, feel the wind, hear the ocean and sense the wildlife. Visitors will learn about fun and interesting moon facts and the effects of the moon on the tidal ecosystem. Full Moon walks are held close to the official full moon. Moonrise is at 9:40PM on May 16th. The stroll will leave from a beachside day use pavilion at 8:00PM. The stroll will cover approximately one mile in length in soft sand. Bring a red lens flashlight or headlamp only (although after our eyes become accustomed to the dark and moonlight we won’t be needing the lights.) Please dress for the weather. Remember, it is often colder and windier near the beach. Also, don’t forget your camera for photo opportunities.  The program is free and open to the public with paid admission fee. All ages welcome, minors must be accompanied by an adult.  The park will close at sunset. All those attending the Full Moon Beach Stroll should arrive before the park closes at 7:33PM. Come early and enjoy some RC Cola and a Moon pie before the stroll. *Event Weather Permitting* Call 850.837.7550 for more information.
