  • The Cadillac Summit Road will close to all traffic at 6:45 pm, Sat Sept 8, except for those that need parking for persons with disabilities. The event is scheduled to end at 11:00 pm.
  • The Cadillac Mountain Summit Road will be closed to bicyclists and pedestrians during the event to keep the shuttles running on time and everyone as safe as possible.
  • This is a very popular event. Every attempt will be made to ensure all guests are able to enjoy ample time at the summit but there are no guarantees.
  • While there are several hundred parking spaces at MDI High School, the lots may fill up. If this occurs, Acadia National Park safety officers may need to turn guests away until spaces open up. Parking is not allowed on Eagle Lake Road. Please follow all instructions from Acadia National Park staff and parking volunteers.
