Sunday To-Do: Big Dam Bridge Full Moon Walk

Posted By on Fri, Nov 23, 2012 at 11:28 AM

The Big Dam Bridge Full Moon Walk is Sunday.
  • The Big Dam Bridge Full Moon Walk is Sunday.

BIG DAM BRIDGE FULL MOON WALK
6:30 p.m. Big Dam Bridge. Free.

OK, odds are that by Sunday, you'll have had three full days of cramming into your gullet a ridiculous amount of turkey, ham, stuffing, green bean bundles, mashed potatoes and gravy, potatoes au gratin, cranberry sauce, rolls, pies and other desserts of various types. Also: you've probably spent some time sitting on the couch watching football or a "No Reservations" marathon or something.

I know that once Thanksgiving is over, it's really easy to just acquiesce to the Holiday Slide and eat however much you want of whatever you want. It's hard, I know. Right now there's probably a casserole dish half-full of something delicious and not-so-nutritious just sitting there, on the counter, waiting. But how about taking the holiday season equivalent of a mid-meal minute, and doing something healthy for a change?

That's what's in store at the Big Dam Bridge Full Moon Walk. There'll be local dignitaries on hand, such as First Lady Ginger Beebe, who'll discuss the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Both sides of the bridge will host health fairs, where you can get a variety of health screenings, information and more.

Take note: there are no pets, bicycles, skates, skateboards or rollerblades allowed. One other thing to note: If you're going to attempt to actually do a full moonwalk all the way across the bridge, keep an eye out, or better yet, have a friend help you out by walking forwards behind you so you don't run anybody over.

There will be shuttle services from Murray Park and Crystal Hill Elementary running people back and forth starting at 5 p.m.
