Aquarium shines bright for the holidays with Festival of Lighthouses

Four model lighthouses made in Norwalk are helping to light the way for visitors to the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk as part of the aquarium’s 11th annual “Festival of Lighthouses.”

Entries by Courtenay Austin, Shar Landers, Jason Larche and Jo Stecker are among the creative lighthouses in the holiday display, which is open daily and free with aquarium admission through Jan. 21. Visitors can follow these homemade beacons through the galleries and then cast a vote for their favorite. The lighthouse with the most votes wins $1,500.

As many as 22 lighthouses will be displayed. The lighthouses were built by local artists
