This year's event will again be held on October 7 at Knoxville's World's Fair Park near downtown Knoxville.
Local children and adults with Down syndrome, their families and designated "buddies," and many other local supporters will participate in the Buddy Walk, which begins at World's Fair Park on October 7 at 1 p.m. and continues throughout the afternoon until around 4 p.m. The walk will wind its way through World's Fair Park (rain or shine!) and conclude with various entertainment, exhibits, food, a silent auction, prizes and more for participants to enjoy at the walk's conclusion.
