Festival marks 110th anniversary of lighthouse
Island music, boat rides, sand castles, food, contests, games and nautical arts and crafts are part of the lineup of this weekend‘s 11th annual Toledo Harbor Lighthouse Festival.

This year‘s celebration marks the 110th anniversary of the lighthouse, which sits at the mouth of the Maumee River and about seven miles out on Lake Erie from Maumee Bay State Park in Oregon. The lighthouse was built to handle increased shipping traffic after the harbor was dredged and enlarged in the 1890s.
