The 12th annual “Festival of Lighthouses Contest” features 22 large model lighthouses, all made by local artists, students and hobbyists. Aquarium visitors can enjoy the lighthouses, which will be set up throughout the aquarium galleries, and then vote for their favorite.
The lighthouse with the most votes will win the $1,500 first-place prize. There are other monetary prizes for second- through sixth-places.
