26th Annual International Bridge Walk
Enjoy the fantastic views and the resultant pictures that will last a lifetime. Best of all, there’s no admission fee, no long waits, and no sweltering heat to contend with, since the walk steps off at 10am.
Sponsored by the International Bridge Authority and the Chamber of Commerce from both cities, organizers remind walkers to bring a passport or other approved I.D. found at the Soo Area Info, International Bridge Customs section of this site. (PLEASE, contact the Sault Ste. Marie Area Chamber of Commerce for more details at 906-632-3301). Bus transportation is available to bring walkers from Ontario to the starting point or, afterward, return those with vehicles waiting to the Norris Center for a small fee of $2.
