The 55th annual Labor Day walk across the Mackinac Bridge is Monday, September 3rd, beginning at 7 am.  The Bridge, The Mighty Mac is an icon for Michiganders, and the opportunity to traverse it on foot presents itself every Labor Day.

The 5-mile span between Mackinac City and St. Ignace officially opened to traffic on November 1, 1957.  Efforts to build a bridge spanning the two penninsulas of Michigan began in the 1880′s.  After World War II, sufficient funds were raised, and the enormous task of building the bridge began.

There is no cost to walk the bridge on Labor Day, but there is a $5 charge to take a bus to St. Ignace before the walk back to Mackinac City.  Thousands upon thousands make the trek every September, so if you’re looking for something to do this weekend, here’s an idea that is pure Michigan!

Have a pastie and buy some fudge while you’re in the neighborhood.
