Huntington Boat Parade


Our Mission

The Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society, Inc. (formerly, Save Huntington’s Lighthouse, Inc.) was formed in 1985 by concerned citizens to prevent the tear down and demolition of the Lloyd Harbor Light Station and its replacement with an automated light tower by the United States Coast Guard. The objectives of the organization are to restore, preserve and maintain the historic lighthouse listed on the National Historic Register as the Huntington Harbor Lighthouse. The organization is dedicated to ongoing preservation of the interior and exterior and preserve it for public use as an educational and historic resource while maintaining its use as an active Aid to Navigation.


Annual Boat Parade by Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society Cancelled for 2016


Holiday Boat Parade of Lights, originally scheduled for Friday, November 25 is Cancelled due to ongoing construction at Huntington Lighthouse


Huntington, New York (October 21, 2016) — The Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society (HLPS) today announced that its annual Holiday Parade of Lights, scheduled for Friday, November 25, 2016, is cancelled for this year. 


The 104-year old historic Huntington Lighthouse is in the midst of significant construction work to its foundation that poses logistical challenges to holding the parade this year. Construction vessels, including barges and tugboats are currently stationed at the lighthouse. However, should they need to seek “Safe Haven” due to weather conditions near the date of the boat parade, they could create additional traffic, potentially impacting the parade staging area. The popularity of the parade has meant additional – and larger – boats participating, adding to concerns about encroachment to construction areas and overall boater safety for parade participants. 


According to Pam Setchell, HLPS President, “This was an extremely difficult decision; however, the ongoing construction work at the lighthouse necessitated this year’s cancellation. We are pleased with the progress of work being done to preserve this historic beacon, and look forward to the return of the boat parade for the 2017 holiday season.”


For more than five years, the Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society has been planning the restoration work and raising funds to accomplish these vital repairs. With the support of the community and fund raising events such as the popular Lighthouse Music Fest, more than $725,000 of the $871,000 goal has been raised, which enabled a $250,000 matching grant from the New York State Department of Parks and Historic Preservation. However, a budget gap of $150,000 still remains for phase one of the project, anticipated to be completed by summer 2017.

PHASE 1 of construction has begun…existing rocks, or rip rap, will be moved aside to allow placement of steel plates around my base which will then be filled with concrete to strengthen my foundation. This should take approx. 3-4 months.


Please help me to spread the word about my NO WAKE ZONE.  I want to keep all the workers who come to fix me safe and every wave creates dangerous conditions and could slow progress, too

Keep up with the progress on our Facebook page and on the Lighthouse Website at  www.huntingtonlighthouse.org
