The lighting of the Whiskey Light over the Roundhouse Bar entrance is an island tradition that dates back dozens of years. It is an acknowledgement to boaters and islanders alike that “the bar is now open” and the season has begun. The actual lighting usually happens around 2 PM and there is always some unique entertainer playing music and entertaining the crowd to open the season. Visit our entertainment page for additional information and to see who is playing. (please contact management to see if this event has been rescheduled)
Easter, also called Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD. It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent, a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance.
Most Christians refer to the week before Easter as “Holy Week” – it contains the days of the Easter Triduum, including Maundy Thursday, commemorating the Maundy and Last Supper, as well as Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus. In Western Christianity, Eastertide, or the Easter Season, begins on Easter Sunday and lasts seven weeks, ending with the coming of the fiftieth day, Pentecost Sunday.
