Lighthouse Night and Torchlight Concert

Sunday, August 13, 2023

The annual Lighthouse Night features throwback entertainment from the early 1900s.

Visitors to the park will be entertained by a sleight-of-hand magician, Italian organ grinder, mechanical man and a Wurlitzer band organ. They’ll be able to see Model T Fords and penny-farthings, those late 19th-century bicycles with a giant front wheel. The event includes some throwback prices as well: 25-cent ice cream cones and 5-cent balloons.

New this year is a barbershop quartet to entertain people. 

Throughout the evening, members of the Edina Model Yacht Club will run their remote-controlled boats on the park’s waters.

Fife & Drums perform at 7:45 p.m., leading up to the Torchlight Concert starting at 8:30 p.m. The First John Philip Sousa Memorial Band, which sponsors Lighthouse Night, performs the concert. The night concludes with a fireworks finale to accompany “Stars and Stripes Forever.”

Admission to Lighthouse Night and the Torchlight Concert are free, and all ages are welcome. Plenty of free parking is available.
