For those of you new to our Annual Festivities, the Buddy Walk is a short 1 mile stroll, starting and finishing on the Sawyer Point Kroger Promenade and heading West through and around Yeatman's Cove (where you will be entertained by the many "acts" along the way)!

Immediately following the Walk, the After Party begins, including music, activities for all age groups, food and beverages donated by our generous sponsors and more!
