The short version of what’s below:
Come to Frankfort for a day of excitement.
Announcing a Special Event in Frankfort. For one day only, on Sunday June 5, 2011 the Lake Express is coming to town. I’ll just post what they want you to know.
“Join us in Frankfort, Michigan on June 5, 2011 for a day of open house tours of Lake Michigan’s high speed ferry and two special excursions on Lake Michigan.
Sunday June 5th will include a variety of on-shore activities and a special opportunity to view the Lake Express up close and meet members of the ship’s crew during a tour of the ship.
The Lake Express will be available to the public for free tours from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
TAKE A RIDE – $10 RESERVED SEAT EXCURSIONS*
Immediately following the morning Free Tour portion of the visit, the Lake Express will hold two special reservation-only tours and excursions. Reserved tickets will allow a limited number of people the special opportunity to experience a ride on the nation’s first high speed auto-passenger ferry. Riders will be taken on a full speed run on Lake Michigan where they will be treated to the unique blend of modern amenities and speed that have been mainstays of the Lake Express service between Milwaukee and Muskegon since 2004.
Advanced reservations for the 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. excursions are available through the links below. $10 per person – proceeds from each trip will be donated to benefit Frankfort-area community groups.
RECORD-BREAKING LAKE MICHIGAN CROSSING
The Lake Express will arrive at Lake Betsie the evening of Saturday June 4th after completing a record-breaking speed run from Kewaunee, Wisconsin – crossing Lake Michigan in just 1-1/2 hours, the fastest ever crossing of Lake Michigan by a ferry.
