The Ludington Lake Jump has been postponed due to lack of safe access.

The Ludington Lake jump will be postponed this year to April 11th. DPW Supt. Joe Stickney, PD Cpt. Mike Harrie and City Manager John Shay all agree;  At this time there is no easy access to open water due to ice.  For safety reasons and the fact that it  would be very difficult for the DPW to move the frozen sand to open up an area on the beach for the Lake Jump, that the event be postponed until April 11th.  

The good news is that it gives the community more time to donate to the Ludington Maritime Museum.
