The residents of a village by the sea celebrate their lighthouse’s birthday by playing games, singing songs, and telling the story of their tall tall friend. You are invited to join a visual, musical journey, where we will climb a ladder, perform circus tricks, and wave at ships. Open to people of all heights. Come with your friends, because friendship is important.
