Sault Ste Marie Hosts International Bridge Walk to Canada

Hundreds of people had an international work out Saturday morning, crossing the border into Canada.

Whether on foot or on bike Saturday was a chance to venture over the St. Mary’s River and Soo Locks.

The 29th Annual International Bridge Walk and bike parade kicked in Sault Ste Marie, Michigan.

The bike parade started the event at 8:30 a.m.

Bikers rode the round trip of 5.6 miles to Canadian customs and back.

The one-way bridge walk followed at 9:30 a.m.

Busses picked up those walkers in Canada and drove them back to Norris Center on Lake State’s campus.

"It’s pretty spectacular going over the top….seeing the Rapids were our favorite. We are glad that they give us the chance to try this!" says Indiana resident Shannon Kamp.

And while this is done only once a year, many took the opportunity to take pictures from a bird’s eye view.
