The trails are beckoning.
Families are invited to bike, walk, run or scooter along the Old Town and Dry Creek trails from Sierra Vista to Dry Creek Park on Saturday, April 30 for the inaugural Clovis Trail Fest.
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the public is invited to participate in yoga, tai chi, boot camps, a children’s bike rodeo, carnival games and more at different stations along the 4-mile stretch of trail.
“It’s really to promote health and wellness as well as our trails and our parks,” said Shonna Halterman, general services manager for the City of Clovis. “There are activities for all ages, from small children to senior citizens and everyone in between. It’s also for every ability and fitness level … I don’t want anybody to feel intimidated.”
The event was inspired by a blog post from a retired City of Clovis employee who is traveling in South America.
“In one city she went to, on Sundays everything shuts down and people just hang out, ride their bikes, play games and exercise,” Halterman described. “I thought we could do something like that here, too, but just do it on the trail.”
The event is free and features live music, snacks and demonstrations at 21 locations.
