Participants can register for either a six- or 10-kilometer walking route and experience a variety of artwork at points of interest, including Meydenbauer Beach Park, Old Main Street, Wildwood Park, Downtown Park, City Hall and the Bellevue Arts Museum.
Event registration will be taken the morning of the event at the Northwest Arts Center, 9825 NE 24th St., 8 a.m. to noon. Walkers must complete the walk by 3 p.m. The event is free for the general public and $3 for American Volkssport Association members seeking credit.
