The Summer Celebration is a free event the entire family can enjoy. Activities will include an ice skating exhibition, free ice skating, a hockey slap shot game, ‘Copsicles’ with the Walker Police Department, Ring a Flamingo Game, a Dance Party and crafts and raffles.

Hopefully, you will be able to attend the Walker Summer Celebration, but if you are not able to, the City of Walker will be hosting a number of family friendly events throughout the summer, giving you plenty of opportunities to check out this wonderful community.
