Event details

Strap up for a grand adventure — from the safety of Isle a la Cache Museum! In 1673, Jacques Marquette and Louis Joliet set out for a voyage by canoe that took them thousands of miles into the heart of North America. They faced challenges from weather, illness, unknown peoples and even river monsters. What choices would you make in their shoes? Whether you’re a solo traveler or you bring a canoe full, come out for this fun, choose-your-own-adventure, trivia-style game to see who comes out on top. Light refreshments will be served.
