Why is the Walk from 8:30-2:00?

You might wonder why the time for the Walk Around the Park is from 8:30-2:00. Isn't that a long time to be hanging out? Well, we wanted to accomodate some different types of people:
  • The early birds who want to walk in the cool of the morning, then help out at the gazebo or man the water tables (maybe take a side trip for shopping on nearby historic Market Street)
  • Those who don't want to be seen, and who you really don't want to see, at 8:30 in the morning on a Saturday. Getting up early on the weekends is not on the list of things they do. They'll get there after they've had their coffee, re-charged their cell phones, checked their MySpace, walked the dog, given the baby an early nap, made 5 phone calls ... they'll get there when they get there and we'll be VERY Happy to see them then!
  • Those coming from a distance who plan to stick around Frederick for the concert in the evening. The gazebo is right next to the bandshell, so we're right in the path of people coming early for that and the carillon recitals.

See you at the walk!
