Friday, July 13
Bridge + Community + Family + Fun
Bring your family and friends for a fun time at On Your Feet Friday, the 2nd Friday each month, through October.
Join the OYFF-July 13 Event on Facebook and invite your friends!
The first two OYFF's were great with success featured in the news and May photos/June 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.
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 discover new places, get some exercise and have fun. Checkpoints will be listed on our GFR Facebook page by Mon, July 9th.
