Join Oil & Water Don't Mix, climate warriors, Indivisible Groups at this year's annual Labor Day Bridge Walk. You'll be walking the Mackinac Bridge just four miles east of the risky submerged Enbridge Line 5 oil pipelines.

Walk the Bridge

Join thousands as we walk as a group across the bridge wearing blue shirts. Any blue shirt will do. We encourage you to purchase a blue Oil & Water Don't Mix shirt here (all designs available in blue - allow time for shipping). We are planning on meeting just east of the toll booths on the St. Ignace (north) side of the bridge and departing for our walk at 9:00 am. Please don't be late! RSVP below to let us know you're coming.

If you've walked the bridge before on Labor Day, this year the bridge authority is making a change you need to know about (more info here). The bridge will be closed to all vehicle traffic (except buses transporting walkers) from 6:30 am until Noon. Get more information about the bridge walk hereBIG NOTE: Because of this change, no walkers will be allowed to start walking after 10:00 am.

Banners and signs are not allowed on the bridge walk - be creative with your shirt and hat!

UPDATE: A second group will be walking starting at 7:00 AM. Join the Great Lakes Water Protectors as they gather at 6:30 AM in St. Ignace. More details on their Facebook event.
