Waterfall Week 2014

PrintThe steady snowfall of winter means a superior spring run-off. As the home to more waterfalls than any other county in the state, with 77, Marquette County is celebrating their spectacular scenery.

Kicking off Waterfall Week, April 21-27, visitors can quench their thirst for adventure and delicious microbrews.  The county’s four microbreweries are teaming up to encourage Views and Brews.  Those who get out and explore any of the easily accessible waterfalls, take a photo in front of it and share it at one of the participating watering holes will receive a commemorative Marquette Waterfall Week pint glass.  In addition everyone who participates in the geocaching scavenger hunt can register to win an overnight stay and other prizes.

Featured brews will be on tap and free waterfall maps are available as well, helping everyone to enjoy some of the most scenic waterfalls in the Midwest.  To learn more, please click here.
