(WJET/WFXP/YourErie.com) — Presque Isle State Park in Erie reopened on Friday, Dec. 16, after windy weather had shut down the park for a day.
On Dec. 15, heavy winds impacted Northwest Pennsylvania. At Presque Isle State Park, trees were downed on the roadways. That led to park officials closing the park to visitors due to “an unsafe environment for visitors.”
With the closure, Presque Isle Lights was canceled for the evening. The reopening means that plans are back on for Presque Isle Lights Friday night for folks to take a self guided tour of the light displays around the park.
The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m., and is free, but donations are welcome.
Presque Isle State Park is at 301 Peninsula Dr. in Erie.
