Bridge + Community + Family + Fun
Bring your family and friends for a fun time at On Your Feet Friday, the 2nd Friday each month, May through October.
The first OYFF was great with success featured in the news and on photos. On Your Feet Friday is a fun, community and family oriented event series. Experience downtown Salem on a Friday night, discover local places, get some exercise and have fun, all at the same time! OYFF is intended to help increase awareness of and funding for the Riverfront to Minto Bridge. It's free and continues every 2nd Friday of the month through October.
New this month: Avoid having to carry your wallet while you go to the checkpoints! Beer (Gilgamesh) and food (Venti's) tickets will be for sale from 5:00-6:00pm on the day of the event, so you can pre-purchase, and enjoy later! ALL PROCEEDS FROM PURCHASES ARE DONATED TO FRIENDS OF TWO BRIDGES!
On Your Feet means exactly that. The format encourages people of all ages to walk or run on sidewalks and through parks in downtown Salem to checkpoints which are local businesses or attractions. On their way, participants will discover new places, get in some exercise and have fun. Every month will include different checkpoints and at least one checkpoint that requires extra effort to reach.
