Cabrillo light houseThe latest victim to the GOP-driven federal government shutdown is the planned 100th anniversary celebration for the Cabrillo National Monument and Lighthouse.

Saturday, October 12th was to be the celebration, entitled “Cabrillo Lights Up the Night,” but it is being postponed (not cancelled as some had thought).

It is with great regret we inform you that “Cabrillo Lights up the Night” must be postponed due to the continuing federal budget impasse and the closure of the nation’s national parks. While we have held out hope of a resolution and the reopening of Cabrillo National Monument, we recognize that our service providers, donors and ticketholders such as you deserve a timely decision on the fate of the event. That time is now.

We have already begun the process of planning a new date for the same combination of food, music, silent auction and fun. We have tentatively selected March 15, 2014, in part to add a near-full moon to the splendor of the evening. This date is not confirmed, I will let you know when the park has approved the date. Looking forward to a fun spring event!
