The annual Labor Day Bridge walk across the Mackinac Bridge takes place this Monday (September 2, 2013). UpNorthLive reports that you can turn your Labor Day bridge walk into a one of a kind experience with a trip to the top of the Mighty Mac!

More than 40,000 people are expected to participate in the 56th Annual Labor Day Bridge Walk which will take on Monday, Sept. 2.

For the second year in a row, the Michigan Department of Transportation and the Mackinac Bridge Authority are asking the public to share their Labor Day Mackinac Bridge Walk experiences on social media with photos and videos. One person sharing their memories will be chosen at random to receive a once-in-a-lifetime tour to the top of the Mackinac Bridge.

Through Monday, Sept. 9, you can post your memories of walking the bridge, either this year or in a previous year, on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #MightyMacWalk13. Memories can include photos or videos.

A lucky person whose entry is chosen at random by computer will receive a tour for two to the top of the bridge, courtesy of the MBA. The person who travels the furthest to walk the bridge this year and post a memory will win a Pure Michigan gift pack, courtesy of the Michigan Economic Development Corp.

  1. Reblogged this on The Three R's Blog and commented:
    35 years ago today my beautiful bride and I were united in marriage on a hot August night in Hope PRC, Walker, MI. Early Saturday morning, after spending our first night in our castle in the trailer park in Wyoming (I was a poor Calvin College student), we headed up to the Mackinac Bridge area, where we spent a romantic honeymoon weekend, visiting the island and other places. On Sunday we worshiped in the only CRC in the UP – in the little town of Rudyard – where we were introduced as newlyweds before a packed holiday weekend crowd (a tad embarrassing for us!). On that Labor Day Monday, we walked the bridge with 5,000 other people. And when our $135 was used up, we came home. It was a memorable start to our lives together. Happy anniversary, honey, and thank you for all your love and loving memories. May Christ continue to be the glue that holds us together, as He has been for 35 years. CJT
