ABOUT: The Beerline Shuffle is a one-of-a-kind community walk meant to inspire residents to get active, get creative and get in engaged. We encourage you to walk, skate, dance and shuffle down the trail while taking in the murals, participating in all the activity stations along the way and listening to music from various artists. For the safety of all, we are restricting motorized forms of transportation or bicycles during the event.
The event will include a scavenger hunt, live music, and multiple community art projects. Snacks, coffee and water will be included with your registration. There will be several restrooms along the route, as well as an ADA accessible restroom at the Beerline Plaza (where the start and finish lines are).
