MHA MadelineHARBOR FESTIVAL: Tall Ship Madeline Offering Free Public Tours Sunday and Monday

The tall ship Madeline will be docked at Waterfront Park Sunday, June 30 and Monday July 1 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. with free public tours. The Madeline is visiting the Port of Ludington as part of the Harbor Festival activities happening this week and is free for the public to attend.

“Harbor Festival is all about Mason County’s maritime history and to have the Madeline join us as part of the celebration is a great addition” said Brandy Henderson, executive director/CEO of the Ludington Area Convention & Visitors Bureau.

The Schooner Madeline is a reconstruction of a mid-19th century Great Lakes schooner and one of the State of Michigan’s official tall ships. It was built between 1985 and 1990 in Traverse City by volunteer members of the non-profit group the Maritime Heritage Alliance. Its mission is to serve as a floating center for the interpretation of Great Lakes maritime history. It is open to visitors in its home port of Traverse City and travels to other Great Lakes ports under local sponsorship. The Ludington Area Convention & Visitors Bureau is sponsoring its visit as part of the Harbor Festival activities.
