Imagine holding a Bloody Mary with a healthy strip of bacon without having to fight the crowds. This is a VIP way to celebrate Grandma’s Marathon morning.

Join us to cheer on the Grandma Marathon runners from the perfect perch of the Harbor Roof and Symphony Hall decks. Overlooking Harbor Drive –with a backdrop of Canal Park and the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge – it’s a beautiful spot for an early summer day. And given that Harbor Drive is one of the last legs of the race and runners truly appreciate your cheers. It’s almost a public service!

Bloody Marys, local beer, wine, and soft drinks will be available for purchase at the cash bar. Credit cards accepted. ATM onsite.



Regular parking rates apply.

Due to heavy traffic, parking in Canal is also an option, and you can take the walking paths over to Entrance F to come join the fun.
