Visiting Northern Michigan

Northern Michigan spring snowmobiling doesn’t get better than Marquette Mountain,  located 15 miles east of Ishpeming and south of the community of Marquette. The Mid America Snow and Terrain Expert Riders Circuit hosts the 2014 MASTERS Snow Drag Championships at Marquette Mountain on April 5th. With man made snow adding to the natural base, Marquette Mountain Uphill Snow Drag is a popular spring snowmobile event. The 2014 Marquette Mountain Hillcross competition follows on April 6th.

Saint Ignace, at the north end of the Mackinac Bridge, is the gateway to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The city of St. Ignace’s Little Bear East Arena is a hub of community activity. The March calendar features Bridge Brawl Hockey Tournaments through the month for various youth age groups. The Home Show & Spring Expo is April 11th, with May featuring the Native American Festival over Memorial Day Weekend.

The Greater Ishpeming-Negaunee Area Chamber of Commerce Sportsman’s Triathlon is a unique Upper Peninsula event. The Sportsman’s Triathlon is a two-day event featuring teams of four competing in golf, archery, and trap shooting. The 2014 triathlon is held west of Ishpeming at the Wawonowin Country Club June 21st and 22nd.

The 2014 raffle car is in for the Escanaba Krusin Klassics Fun Run May 30th and 31st. Kick off summer in Ludington Park as the Krusin Klassics parade of cars lines up. Enjoy the parade as it makes its way to the U.P. Fairgrounds for the weekend events. The fun includes dancing to live tunes by Jam Band, breakfast by the Ford River Lions Club, and the raffle featuring a 1980 Camaro Z28 with 53,000 original miles.

Mark June 27th on the calendar for a visit to Soo Locks in Sault Sainte Marie. The 2014 Soo Locks hosts its annual open house and Soo Locks Engineers Day. Visitors have the opportunity to walk across the Lock walls, which enable large shipping vessels to traverse between Lake Superior and the lower Great Lakes. The Cloverland Electric Cooperative Hydroelectric Plant is also open for tours.

Saturday, June 28th is the opportunity to join the 2014 International Bridge Walk. Presented by the International Bridge Authority and the Sault Ste. Marie Area Chamber of Commerce, the bridge runs 2.8 miles high above the Soo Locks canals. If biking is more to your liking arrive for the 8:30 am road bike parade across the bridge, with the walkers stepping off at 9:30 a.m.
