Walk Tacoma series continues June 5 with immigrant history tour

Downtown On The Go will continue its Walk Tacoma series next week with a free walking tour that will highlight Tacoma’s immigrant history along a 1.6-mile walking route.

The tour, which will be held on Weds., June 5 between noon and 1 p.m. and begin and end at the corner of South 11th Street and Broadway in front of the historic Woolworth Building, will be led by Patsy Surh O’Connell, president and founder of the Asia Pacific Cultural Center. There is no need to pre-register for the event, which is sponsored by City Grocer IGA.

Walk Tacoma 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.
