    Lighthouses are throwbacks to a time without GPS, when they served as crucial beacons on dark nights. 

    And today’s their day.

    It’s National Lighthouse Day, and the folks at the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse in North Wildwood invite you to celebrate 224 years along the shores of the Hereford Inlet.

    Until 5 p.m. today, enjoy music, food, a children’s activity tent, special guests, and exhibits. 

    Authors will be on hand to sign books, including David Veasey (“New Jersey Then and Now”), Nancy Patterson (“May the Magnificient Lighthouse”), and Steve Murray (“Guardians of the Hereford Inlet”).

    Admission is free. 

    For more information, dial (609) 522-4520.
