ST. IGNACE, MI (AP) -

Vintage snowmobiles will be allowed to cross the Mackinac Bridge during a special event.

The Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum in Naubinway and the St. Ignace Visitor's Bureau are teaming up to host the ride Saturday.

Only snowmobiles at those least 25 years old can participate. They must be outfitted with wheel kits, and the wheels must be at least 2 inches wide without studs or cleats. There's a fee of $35 per snowmobile.

Participants will leave their machines in Mackinaw City and drive their trailers to the north end of the bridge in St. Ignace. A shuttle will return participants to their snowmobiles.

It's believed this will be the first time snowmobiles will be allowed to cross the bridge linking the Lower and Upper Peninsulas.
