Fireworks over U.S. Arches of International Bridge
The twin Sault’s joined together in friendship and celebration as the International Bridge lit the bridge for the 50th Anniversary on Thursday, June 28th, 2012!
Fireworks cascaded over the St. Mary’s River between the cities, after the Sault Ste. Marie Bridge Authority counted down and flipped the switch for the new anniversary bridge lights.
The Sault Ste. Marie International Bridge has connected the twin cities of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan and Ontario, for 50 years. The occasion was marked with a bridge lighting ceremony and commemorative fireworks June 28, and a record-setting crowd participating in the 26th Annual Bridge Walk on June 30.
