Cold weather postpones opening of Mqt. beaches

Beaches in Marquette will not open on Memorial Day weekend as normally planned.

Due to the cold weather, the Marquette Fire Department will postpone opening beaches until Wednesday, May 29.

After that date, the beaches will be staffed with lifeguards seven days a week from noon until 8 p.m.  Any beach closures after May 29 will be posted on the City of Marquette’s website, and announced through news releases.
