LUDINGTON, Mich., — The Lake Michigan resort town of Ludington is welcoming the fresh new colors of fall with a number of modified events and new exhibits at local attractions.
“Autumn has always been a popular time to visit Ludington, and even more so now as families seek activities and events that provide safe social distancing,” said Brandy Miller, executive director of the Ludington Area Convention & Visitors Bureau. “We’ve put some fun twists on past events plus added new events and attractions for plenty of options, in addition to Mason County’s stunning natural resources to get off the grid.”
At Historic White Pine Village, “Beyond the Game” interactive exhibit features the history of many popular sports with the stories of Mason County Hall of Fame inductees and professional athletes. Visitors will also see Detroit Tigers memorabilia.
“Travelling in Time,” also new to Historic White Pine Village, displays seven iconic vehicles dating from 1917 to 1967.
In mid-October, the Port Ludington Maritime Museum will welcome the Armistice Day exhibit. The permanent addition will commemorate the Armistice Day Storm on November 11, 1940 which killed 154 people on Lake Michigan. Visitors will explore three sunken freighters that were victims to the storm and learn just how powerful the storm was.
Ludington is also proud to be one of the six northern Michigan communities participating in the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) Inside Out Program. Eight DIA art reproductions can be found at various venues in Ludington, which are listed on the Ludington Area Center for the Arts website.
Ludington will also continue with a number of fall events with modified schedules and rules in order to adhere to state and local safety guidelines. Events include Octoberfest, Courtyard Concerts, Camp Sauble Cages of Carnage Haunted Attraction tours and more. A full list can be found on the Ludington Area Convention & Visitors Bureau website.
In addition, visitors booking a stay at Mason County participating lodging properties can receive discounts for a second night stay Sundays through Thursdays through October 31.
