On Your Feet Friday

Bridge + Community + Family + Fun and Free!

On Your Feet Friday (OYFF) is a community and family oriented series of events, the 2nd Friday of each month, May through September.  On Your Feet means exactly that.  The format encourages people of all ages to walk or run on sidewalks and through parks in and around downtown Salem. Along the way to local business or park checkpoints, discover new places, get some exercise and have fun. Each month includes eight different checkpoints.

SAFETY

There is no set course. You decide how you get to the checkpoints. Please respect all pedestrian traffic signals and use safety when crossing streets. Let’s set a good example for the kids. Be safe!
