In a walk in celebration of cultural diversity and community, Mesa will join Chandler, Gilbert, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Guadalupe, and host city Tempe in the Annual Regional Unity Walk and Festival Saturday, Jan. 25 from 4:30 p.m. until 7 p.m.
"The Unity Walk is a great opportunity for neighboring communities to come together and display a united front against discrimination and promote mutual respect and understanding for all community members," City of Mesa Community Services Director Ruth Giese said.
The walk will begin with a festival at 4:30 p.m. at Tempe Beach Park. It will include refreshments and entertainment. The one-mile candlelight walk, starting at 6 p.m., will begin and end at Tempe Beach Park. Families, community organizations, scout groups, school clubs and church groups are all welcome to participate. Mesa walkers are encouraged to wear turquoise or teal-colored shirts. Free t-shirts will be available on a first-come basis. Free public parking is available at the 201 S. Ash Garage (formerly US Airways parking garage) located near Rio Salado Parkway and Ash Avenue.
