While Lake Superior might be quite cold for swimming activities for a majority of the year, the plus side is it's shark free.  We need to make sure that it's kept that way and Glensheen invites you out to help the cause.

Every Wednesday in April, there are shark-watching events that the whole family is invited to attend.  As part of the effort, attendees are there to make sure the lake is staying shark free, so bring your binoculars.  April nights are still relatively cool in the Twin Ports, especially along the lake, so make sure to wear warm clothes.  Glensheen will of course have the bonfire going to help keep you warm, but don't forget your lawn chairs.

For the adults, to help with the keeping warm, a cash bar will be available in the garage of the Carriage House.  You'll be able to purchase beer and wine, which I find helps with any shark-watching activities.  Come hungry if you want too, because there will be tacos with bags of chips for only $5.00 and they will feature Little Angie's fresh salsa with those.

It's a nice and inexpensive way to spend a couple of hours outdoors with the family.  For the Wednesday evenings, the events will run from 5:00-8:30PM, and again it's free to attend other than the food an beverages if you want in on that.  The historic Glensheen Mansion is located at 3300 London Road in Duluth, MN.  You can get more information on this event and all of the other free or low cost events put on by Glensheen HERE.
