  • Palm Harbor 9/11 Memorial Lights

    On September 9, 10 and 11, from 8 – 10:00 pm, the Palm Harbor 9/11 Memorial Lights will shine at Curlew Hills Memory Gardens. The giant twin beams will shine more than 1000 feet in the sky each evening in likeness to the two beams of light that shined in New York City following 9-11. People are encouraged to drive by the Curlew Hills 9/11 Memorial as they light up the night sky as a beacon of remembrance. It is a magnificent and emotional sight for the whole family.

    This light tribute is a unique, and spectacular gesture of remembrance that will illuminate the sky on the evening of September 9, 10 & 11. It is the only 9/11 light memorial in the state of Florida.

    The purpose of the lights is to serve as an iconic symbol that both honors those lives lost and celebrates the unbreakable spirit of America.

    Curlew Hills is located at 1750 Curlew Road, Palm Harbor.
