The 16-foot-tall gingerbread lighthouse that trumpets the arrival of the holiday season yearly on our Classic Coast for the last 18 years now stands tall in the lower lobby at the Newport Marriott.
Comprised of 350 pounds of gingerbread totaling 1,600 bricks topped with 2,400 pieces of candy and 20 gallons of royal icing, the lighthouse is one of New England's largest working gingerbread lighthouses.
The public is invited to view the lighthouse at the Newport Marriott daily through January 1, 2019. Complementary parking is available at the Gateway Visitors Center lot. Visitors are encouraged to bring a nonperishable food item to fill the Marriott’s sleigh for local food pantries.
