This evening walk begins at 4:00 PM with registration and entertainment from a live Top 40 cover band called PrimeTime. The walk begins at 5:00 and walkers make a 2-mile loop around the park, shaking their maracas and making noise while enjoying bands at different points along the route. Back in the park, fundraising walkers are treated to free food, including gluten-free and regular options.
