With autumn in the air, our event season moves forward with full force ~ Old Time Dances continue as always on each fourth Sunday, the next one being November 23. Become a member of The Barnacle Society and enjoy free Starlight Movie Classics twice a year. On Sunday, December 7, bring a blanket and a picnic for To Have and Have Not, Lauren Bacall’s 1944 screen debut. On your calendar, circle Sunday, December 14, because The Currys take the stage for The Barnacle under Moonlight concert. Return on Sunday, December 21 for Chanukah at The Barnacle and the following Sunday, December 28 for Decembers Old Time Dance. The 2014’s event schedule rounds out with our Up Past Bedtime kids movie, Toy Story.  You may also join us for Yoga by the Sea each Monday and Wednesday beginning at 6:30 p.m.

If you're looking for a special gift for the sailor or history lover in your life, new items are arriving often, so be sure to check out The Barnacle Society's gift shop housed in the 1927 Carriage House on the grounds of The Barnacle. There truly is something for everyone at The Barnacle. So visit the park’s event page to learn more details about what’s happening next at YOUR state park.

Remember to check out the Autumn 2014 issue of The News Packet, the newsletter of The Barnacle Society, Inc. Better yet, ask about becoming a member!

*** Yoga by the Sea is cancelled for Wednesday, November 26 so that participants and staff may enjoy Thanksgiving preparations with their families. Classes will resume on Monday, December 1. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


The Barnacle is located in Coconut Grove (Miami) at 3485 Main Highway.
