SAULT STE. MARIE, MI - Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan will be buzzing with activity during the first annual “Sault Ships & Sailabration” event, a combination of traditional “Downtown Days” and “History Fest,” among other annual happenings.
The most exciting happenings to take place during the two-day Sailabration include multiple performances by the U.S. Navy Band Great Lakes, and excursions on the “Inland Seas,” a tall sailing ship (shown).
Sault Ships & Sailabration’s downtown activities include the annual “Slashin’ Ashmun Auto Show,” the “Lock City Motorcycle & Scooter Show,” multiple children’s games and activities, old-fashioned sidewalk sales, and of course U.S. Navy Band performances.
History Fest will take place on historic Water Street just a few blocks from downtown, and will feature a native encampment, historic re-enactors, and will also serve as the docking site for the tall ship, nearby at the Kemp Marina.
