Along the shores of Lake Superior we often hear tales about the Gales of November, traditionally
a dangerous time of the year on the big lake.

November 10, 2018
11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
This annual event commemorates the sinking of the freighter Edmund Fitzgerald and the loss of her 29 crew members on November 10, 1975. It is also a time to reflect on the memory of all lives lost in Great Lakes shipwrecks. The lighthouse, fog signal building and visitor center will be open. Costumed guides will greet visitors and provide historic site and shipwreck information. Throughout the afternoon, visitors can view a film about the Edmund Fitzgerald in the visitor center.
At 4:30 pm, the lighthouse will close temporarily while the names of the crew members are read to the tolling of a ship’s bell. Following the ceremony, the beacon will be lit, and the tower will be open again to tour.
While visiting the North Shore area be sure to take in all the sights at the Bentleyville “Tour of Lights”
conveniently located along the waterfront in Duluth.
