Come for the Walk, Stay for the Festivities!
This year’s Walk festivities will be filled with lots of great music, food, and fun activities for the entire family to enjoy!
The Rockabilly Legend Returns: Live music by Dibbs Preston and the Detonators!
Dibbs Preston helped create the rockabilly revival as front-man of England’s The Rockats, which opened for the Clash, Bowie, and more. Dibbs and the Detonators have played all over the country, selling out clubs, proving themselves as a great live act. With a choice blend of rockabilly, classic country and out and out rockers, Dibbs and the Dets’ explosive style keeps the fans rockin’!

Delicious Bites will be available for purchase from local food trucks including Hot Mess Express, Mad Waffle LLC, and Smokehouse Food Truck.
Enjoy sips and samples from Spike’s Tiny Taproom!
Fun and exciting dog contests are always a crowd-favorite at the Walk for the Animals! Categories include best-dressed, best smile, best tailwagger, best trick, and best pet/owner look-alike!
