Walk+Bike the Arts
Monday,  June 11, 6-8pm
A new family experience will be taking place at the Kettering Block Party on Monday, June 11 from 6 to 8pm!
A collaboration between the Kettering Arts Council and Kettering’s Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee, Walk+Bike the Arts has been re-imagined as a self- guided tour for children and their parents of Lincoln Park’s public art. Families will create a meaningful experience and be educated about Kettering’s culture and dedication to the arts. B.P.A.C. will be present to give and fit bike helmets for kids and the Kettering Police Department will be giving biking and pedestrian safety talks throughout the Block Party.
Arts Council members will be stationed throughout the tour to talk about each piece and its history in Kettering. If a child finishes the tour and their passport (given at the beginning of the tour), they will be rewarded with a special prize pack. So remember, bring your bicycles and/or walking shoes to Kettering’s Block Party and have fun!
