See the sweet side of Tacoma by joining Downtown On the Go for the Sugar Walk on Wednesday, July 17, 2013 from noon – 1 p.m. The 1.1 mile walk, sponsored by TWOKOI Japanese Cuisine, will start at Tollefson Plaza at 17th and Pacific, and head to the Dome District, with a ride back on the Link.
Participants will learn about Tacoma’s rich history in candy making from historian and author Ron Magden. Along the route, participants will also be able to sample some of Tacoma’s finest candies and baked goods. The walk event is free and there is no need to pre-register, simply join us at the meeting spot.
The Sugar Walk is part of Downtown On the Go’s 2013 Walk Tacoma series sponsored by Franciscan Health System. It is an eight-event walking series held on the first and third Wednesdays, from April through August. The fun, themed walks, now in their fourth year, encourage downtown employees and residents to exercise and enjoy the outdoors by discovering the different walking routes and parks in downtown Tacoma. The walks are scheduled at the lunch hour and just after work to encourage downtown employees to walk during their workday, whether it is to and from work, at a lunch break, or to a nearby meeting.
