The Penobscot Marine Museum's Main Street Gallery will be featuring gingerbread lighthouses on Friday, Nov. 30 from 4 to 7:30 p.m.

Kathy Goldner of the Penobscot Marine Museum says the idea came about since Nov. 30 is the town of Searsport's official holiday tree lighting, during which the town sings carols around the tree, located on the Penobscot Marine Museum campus.

"We have a lot of different people making the gingerbread lighthouses [including] some individual trustees and also some local restaurants," Goldner said. "There's a place in Belfast called Bell the Cat, they are making one. There's a restaurant called Good Kettle who is making one and one here in Searsport, a new restaurant called the Roadhouse Cafe who will be making one. We are very excited. I think we have 10 commitments so far."

There will be at least 10 gingerbread lighthouses at this event, and individuals are welcome to create and bring their own. The idea of making a gingerbread lighthouse came when two of the trustees found a template in 'Country Living Magazine' for making lighthouses.

The gingerbread lighthouses may be a yearly occurrence if there's a good turnout.

"If we get a great response we would love to do it every year. I can't commit to that right now," Goldner said. "I can commit to a party."
