Raffle for Freighter Ride


Have you ever wondered what it’s like to ride aboard a Great Lakes freighter? Now is your chance to find out! Enter the Soo Locks Visitors Center Association raffle for a chance to take a round-trip voyage aboard an Interlake Steamship vessel in the summer of 2020. 

The first-place winner and three guests win the freighter prize. Departure port and dates will be coordinated with the winner. Second-place winners receive an overnight stay at Whitefish Point, and third-place winners get a two-night stay at Holiday Inn Express. 

The drawing will be held on September 6. The winner will be responsible for transportation to and from the eventual departure port. Contestants must have a valid U.S. passport and be physically able to climb stairways and ladders.
