Clouds block sun during final Marquette Habor Lightouse sunrise tour of the season

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - It was a cloudy sunrise Tuesday morning, but there was still plenty to see atop the Marquette Harbor Lighthouse.

Patrons on the final lighthouse sunrise tour of the season were able to watch the clouds get brighter and the waves of Lake Superior crashing on the shore.

This is the second year that the Marquette Maritime Museum has held the summer sunrise tours, and they cost just $10, or $5 if you're under 12 years old. With tour season ending, the museum is just getting busier, with a major fundraiser dinner next month at the Masonic Square Mall.

“We're going to do this amazing program on shipwrecks that will include music and interviews, just a fantastic program,” said Hilary Billman, director of the Marquette Maritime Museum. “If anybody is interested in shipwrecks and maritime history, tickets are $50, and they are available at the museum. All proceeds will go to keeping the museum running.”
