The Big Rigs Were In Town

About 100 eighteen wheelers came blasting across the Mackinac Bridge Saturday night and the town was packed along the parade route with excited visitors waiting to get a glimpse of these big trucks. With horns blasting,the beautiful lighted, immaculate trucks made their way along South Huron and Central Avenue to the encouragement of the crowds. It was a perfect fall night and the trucks put on a great show. Take a look.

Big Wheels Were Rollin In Mackinaw!

One tractor, two tractors, red tractor, blue tractor! That’s right. The big tractors all 870 of them came to town on Thursday and 820 paraded across the Might Mac on Friday morning. I was unable to move my vehicle because the line up for the parade had started early. So I took several pictures from my car and then from the motel. Here are some of my favorites.

The Is The Job

I was out in the back parking lot when I noticed a bridge worker walking on the catwalk up the cables towards the towers. Then a crane came along and hoisted up a platform for the worker. Can you imagine the view from there? I’m not certain that I could walk up the catwalk and feel like I’m not going to fall. But I sure would love to give it a try. How about You?
