PARKING

Carpooling is encouraged! We have parking in the lots in front of and beside the stadium. If you’ve been to a game, you know that parking can fill up – I encourage you to get there early for an easier parking experience. 

 

EVENT DAY SCHEDULE

 

Registration opens at 1:00pm. The team t-shirt contest will be at 1:30pm. Activities and music will occur until the Walk starts at 2:00pm. The Walk typically ends at 3:30pm.

 

The Walk will take place rain or shine.

 

WALK ROUTE

 

The route will begin at the Tourists Stadium. We will turn right onto Charlotte Street, turn right onto College Street, and turn right again onto Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. This will create a circle so that we end at the Tourists Stadium. The walk route has a slight hill. For those of you who would like a shorter route, we will have a shortcut. The shortcut will be clearly marked with signage by the water stop. Service dogs only.
