About Illumination Night...An annual favorite for locals and visitors alike, thousands of flares illuminate the beaches of Onset Bay. Don't be late, you'll miss it!

The Onset Fire horn will blow once at 9:00 to signal the lighting of the flares. They will burn for 3
0 minutes.

FREE but donations are welcome! Volunteers will be out with buckets for collecting donations.

Rain date, Sunday, August 19.

More details to come. Stay tuned!

We are encouraging anyone that lives along Onset Bay to illuminate your residence for the occasion! Strings of lights, lanterns, luminaries, lasers, led's or anything you think would make this event even better would be appreciated and add to the fun! Let us know you'd like to participate by emailing us at or call the office at 508-295-7072 OR, just do it!

Free parking at Hynes Field on the corner of 10th Street and Onset Ave next to Chuck's Auto. It's a 5 minute walk to the pier up Onset Ave from there.
