Cruise Ship and Miss Michigan Contestants Arrive!

Date: June 11, 2018
Heritage Landing Dock in Muskegon, Michigan
Please join us June 11th at the Heritage Landing Dock at the Port of Muskegon. This day kicks off the Great Lakes cruise ship season as the community welcomes the Pearl Mist Cruise Ship.


The 335 square foot vessel is part of the Pearl Seas Cruise line and arrives in Muskegon Lake around 9:00 a.m. and stays in port until 10:00 p.m. Ship passengers tour the Lake Michigan shoreline during the day, visiting history and cultural attractions.


At 3:30 pm, the 2018 Miss Michigan Pageant contestants will arrive at the Heritage Landing Dock to view the ship, sign autographs, and participate in a photoshoot. Local dignitaries will be on hand to greet both the ship and the Miss Michigan scholarship contest participants.


Media representatives are welcome to join the festivities. Please contact Kristin Knop for details at or call 231-722-3751.
