Walk Tacoma series continues April 17 with downtown art tour

Downtown On the Go will continue its Walk Tacoma series next week with a free walking tour that will highlight art work along a 1.5-mile route in downtown Tacoma.

The tour, which will be held on Weds., April 17 between 5:15 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. and begin at the Hotel Murano, located at 1320 Broadway in downtown Tacoma, will be led by Tacoma Arts Administrator Amy McBride. It will also include Spaceworks Tacoma Coordinator Heather Joy, who will share information about Spaceworks Tacoma, which aims to fill vacant commercial spaces with artists and entrepreneurs. After the walk, participants are invited to attend a social event with food and drink specials at the Gallery located at BITE Restaurant in the Hotel Murano. There is no need to pre-register for the event.

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.
