Check out over 30 booths! Try Tai Chi or learn a dance, play mini golf, hula hoop, listen to live music, play carnival games, participate in an art activity at the Chihuly booth and check out the foster pets available from Sheyenne Valley Friends of the Animals, and lots more.

ON THE MOVE is teaming up with Valley City Parks and Recreation Dept. (an ON THE MOVE partner) to promote parks in July for National Park and Rec Month.

Andrea Winter, licensed registered dietitian and ON THE MOVE Coordinator at City County Health District, says “Walking is powerful medicine and the Let’s Walk Valley City event gives us the opportunity to have some fun and enjoy beautiful City Park as well as walk the one-mile path over to the VCSU campus.  Regular physical activity has been shown to reduce the risks of developing many types of chronic disease such as hypertension, stroke, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and many forms of cancer; and walking can help us keep a healthy weight and reduce stress,” continues Winter.
