Come Walk With Us

 

On June 28, 2014 Join us for the historical walk! You may walk one of the most picturesque 2.8 mile walks and say to your family:

“Look, we’re walking high above the Soo Locks canals.”                                                             Photo by M-DOT                                           

 “Wait! Here comes a freighter beneath the bridge.”

“Check out the anglers wading into the rapids.”

Young and old, physically fit or fitness challenged, all enjoy the fantastic view

s and the resultant pictures that will last a lifetime. Best of all, there’s no admission fee, no long waits, and no sweltering heat to contend with

since the walk steps off at 9:30am. Not up for the walk across the bridge? Join the round trip bike parade that leaves LSSU at 8:30am. 

 

Sponsored by the International Bridge Authority and the Chamber of Commerce from both cities, organizers remind walkers to bring a passport or other approved I.D. found at the Soo Area Info, International Bridge Customs section of this site. (PLEASE, contact the Sault Ste. Marie Area Chamber of Commerce for more details at 906-632-3301). Bus transportation is available to bring walkers from Ontario to the starting point or, afterward, return those with vehicles waiting to the Norris Center for a small fee of $2. Visitors will find plenty to do back on the Michigan side, with a full offering of museums, boat tours, beaches, parks and more open to the public. For more information please e-mail the Sault Area Chamber of Commerce at info@saultstemarie.org or call (906)632-3301.

This is a Unique Walk

Join us at Lake Superior State University

“There are so many reasons that this is a unique walk, but the highlight is definitely seeing the Soo Locks complex from a distinctly aerial vantage point. Visitors who have walked other bridges tell us ours is one-of-a-kind.”

It is a festive atmosphere that accompanies the event’s start and completion. Walkers gather at the Lake Superior State University Norris Center to await the official start of the walk. As they gather, they are treated to free musical performances and can purchase a light snack or beverage to sustain them through the walk. As walkers enter Ontario, they are greeted with more singing, as well as a certificate of completion.
