“It is something that we have been working on for a number of years, trying to promote physical activity in the city of Grand Haven,” Mayor Roger Bergman said.
According to Bergman, the city has taken part in the Labor Day walks for the past four years, with attendance holding steady in each event.
“I think we average about 300 people who show up, and we always hope for more,” he said.
The walk will begin on Harbor Island at the Third Street bridge. Participants will travel to the boardwalk, where they will go to the lighthouse. They will return along the boardwalk to Chinook Pier for a total distance of 3.5 miles.
An optional return trolley ride will be available at the trolley turn-around near Grand Haven State Park.
After the walk, there will be a free ice cream social at the Temptations ice cream shop at Chinook Pier.
