Experience the Keweenaw goes virtual for Memorial Day Weekend
Despite sunny skies and warming temperatures, the coronavirus has forced many to cancel their annual Memorial Day Weekend travels to the Keweenaw this year. For those yearning for a taste of the great outdoors, you don’t have to miss out thanks to this year’s virtual Experience the Keweenaw event.
For the past three years, organizers of Experience the Keweenaw have invited community members and visitors to participate in activities like guided hikes, group mountain bike rides or kayak demonstrations. This year, because of public gathering and travel restrictions, organizers are bringing the Keweenaw to online viewers through a series of social media watch parties scheduled for the holiday weekend.
Memorial Day Weekend Event Schedule
Keeping with the Memorial Day Weekend tradition, viewers at home are invited to join Keweenaw trail and conservation volunteers as they explore a selection of breathtaking experiences hosted on the Keweenaw Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Facebook page. Participants are encouraged to watch these experiences with other online fans of the Keweenaw. The events scheduled for this weekend are:
