For the first time in the history of the Labor Day Mackinac Bridge Walk, the bridge will be closed to traffic from 6:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Avoid the parking lot that will be I-75 and take Shepler’s Ferry to the Island from Mackinaw City and then on to St. Ignace. Hop on our shuttle bus to the base of the Bridge to begin your walk. It’s fun. It’s relaxing. And it’s only the cost of a round trip ticket. (Buy online and save $2.00 per adult.)
***PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING CHANGE***
Due to larger than normal crowds expected, we may not be able to shuttle guests to the base of the bridge for the walk. If we are unable to get everyone to the base in a timely fashion, we will bring everyone to Little Bear Arena to catch the bus to the start of the walk.
Staying in St. Ignace?
Walk the bridge, then take the boat to the Island. Instead of spending your time in the car waiting for the bridge traffic, you can spend the day in one of the most beautiful places in Michigan, getting one more day of summer vacation!
Labor Day departures start at 5:30 a.m. from Mackinaw City. Don’t want to get started that early? Our next departures that allow you to “boat hop” to St. Ignace are at 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. and will give you plenty of time to walk the 5 mile span. All walkers must start walking the Bridge by 10:00 a.m.
