—Join Redmond Mayor John Marchione for the Luke McRedmond Centennial Walk
to explore the history of Redmond on Saturday, October 13th. The City of Redmond has partnered with Feet First, a non-profit group dedicated to promoting the rights and interests of pedestrians and finding ways to encourage walking. Registration begins at 2pm on the great lawn at Redmond City Hall. The event is FREE!
Select between 6.5 or 3.3 mile trail walks. The longer route will explore the Sammamish River Trail, Redmond/ Puget Sound Energy Trail, Ashford Trail, Bear Creek Trail and a few hidden gems in the neighborhoods. The shorter walk will be concentrated in Downtown and is accessible. Walkers on both routes will have the opportunity to participate in a narrative tour of the downtown historical district led by the Redmond Historical Society. The walks will end back at City Hall with lawn games and music from “Proud Wonderful Me” and “the Foghorns”. Enjoy something delicious to eat after the walk from savory and sweet food trucks.
The walk is family and dog friendly and all ages and abilities are welcome. Mayor Marchione will open the event with a few remarks and lead the start of the walk. For extra fun along the way, stop at five stations along the way and receive playing cards with historical or significant people and places in Redmond. At the end of the walk, use your cards to play in the poker tournament. The best poker hands have a chance to win fantastic prizes!
Come celebrate Redmond’s centennial while enjoying a healthy afternoon of fun and exploration. For more information call Feet First at 206-652-2310 ext.2 or by emailing email@example.com
