Children can load an ore boat, navigate the Soo Locks and dance like a drop of water as part of the three days celebrating Lake Superior Day.

Events will run Friday and Saturday at the Lake Superior Maritime Visitor Center in Duluth's Canal Park and on Sunday at Barker's Island in Superior.

Lake Superior promoters have for years set the third Sunday in July as a day to celebrate the big lake.

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday various presentations and hands-on activities will be offered for children at the museum located next to the Duluth ship canal. A series of "10-minute Tent Talks" offer activities, readings and short presentations by environmental experts, artists and writers under a tent outside the center - a children's focus on Friday and more grown-up topics Saturday. Free tours at 1:15 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. each day will guide participants through the history of the piers and the Aerial Lift Bridge.

In the evenings Friday and Saturday, the Freshwater Dance Collective celebrates the lake with free dance performances directed by choreographers from Duluth, Minneapolis and California. The performance starts at 7 p.m. each night in Lake Place Park, located through the archway on Superior Street across from the NorShor Theater.

On Sunday at Superior's Barker's Island, there will be informational tables, vendors, standup paddleboarding and live music - all free - from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. coordinated by the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve. Also on Sunday, several Twin Ports churches will focus on Lake Superior and water stewardship in their sermons and services.
