Community Event: PUTTER AROUND TOWN
Main Street Delaware’s May 7 First Friday Lite Features Miniature Golf, 13th Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
Main Street Delaware’s May 7 First Friday Lite celebration will feature an 18-hole miniature golf course and the 13th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes (on your own) to raise awareness of violence toward women.
The golf course will enable participants to use foam balls to putt-putt their way around downtown Delaware. Tickets are $5 per person and will be available May 7, along with scorecards and player wristbands, at the Main Street Delaware Welcome Center, 20 E. Williams St., Delaware.
After they putter around town, players are invited to return their completed scorecards to the Welcome Center to be entered into prize drawings. In addition, the lowest-scoring card also has a chance to win a “Main Street Masters” championship green jacket.
Also at the Welcome Center, the community will be able to meet representatives of the Delaware County Coalition of Victim Services to learn how to stand up against domestic and sexual abuse. Free Walk a Mile T-shirts will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Those who want to participate in the traditional mile-long walk on their own are invited to post their participation on social media using #DelawareWalksTogether.
As always, many stores and restaurants will stay open late for this monthly First Friday Lite celebration, which will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Those participating in the May First Friday are reminded to follow public safety guidelines and wear facial coverings as posted.
May’s First Friday is sponsored by Performance Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Delaware and Olentangy Mini Golf and Batting Cages. Learn more about this and all Main Street Delaware activities and opportunities at www.mainstreetdelaware.com.
