It started as an effort to save Sturgeon Bay’s Michigan Street Bridge from the wrecking ball and this weekend marks the 11th Steel Bridge Songfest. Citizens for Our Bridge’s mission is to preserve and promote the bridge and the week-long Songfest celebration is one way to do it. Wayne and Becky Schmalz have made the trip from Appleton for four years and even brought their neighbors along for the second year in a row. Wayne says you can’t beat it.
Becky agrees and says you’ll see a lot of acts that aren’t on the usual festival circuit.
The music continues through 6:30 Sunday night near the north end of the steel bridge in downtown Sturgeon Bay.
