Summer Parkways will be different in 2021! Although Covid-19 restrictions prevent large group gatherings, lovers of Summer Parkways can still take advantage of outdoor activities and walk, run, bike, roller skate or scoot the regular 4-mile Summer Parkways route through the Manito-Comstock neighborhoods anytime June 14-20.
This year, the event organizers are adding a fun activity, similar to a scavenger hunt, called “Summer Parkways Search & Spot.” There will be a series of questions online, and participants will find answers along the 4-mile route, according to , according to Katherine Widing, spokesperson for Summer Parkways. The route map is posted on the Summer Parkways website and Facebook page. Participants can then submit answers online for prizes. This will be a great activity for both kids and adults, and can be done at any time during the designated Summer Parkways week, Widing says.
