Michigan hosts two really interesting Labor Day traditions each year. One is the Mackinac Bridge Walk. Held every year since the bridge opened in 1957, it is a pilgrimage to Michiganders, one which must be made at least once in your life. We have walked the bridge as a couple twice, but my husband has done so more often.
And it's beautiful.
The race has regular stopping places, where town residents bake cookies, serve juice and water, and generally afford a chance to rest and recoup along the journey. It's quite an amazing community event, as the bikers wind their way through each town along the way.
What traditions do you have - celebrated on a regular basis, or only once a year?
