Celebrating the Houghton & Hancock Bridgefest

This weekend is the annual Bridgefest in Houghton and Hancock. We thought there would be no better way to celebrate than sharing 13 (after all it is Friday the 13th) stunning photos of the historic Portage Canal Lift Bridge joining the cities of Houghton and Hancock. Enjoy.
