Walkers congregated at the Music Man Square at noon and were asked to wear blue. There was a 1K and a 2K walk to choose from. Mayor Eric Bookmeyer and At-Large City Councilman Alex Kuhn both took part to show support.
Well over 100 people participated in the walk on this chilly day. Walkers were sent off with a number from the Mason City High School marching band and the Mason City Blue Zones owl mascot. Some carried Blue Zones signs.
The walk started at Music Man Square and went through Southbridge Mall and through the downtown area. The 2K walkers headed up to 3rd Street while the 1K walkers turned east on State Street to head back to Music Man Square.
The walk was to show support for Mason City being designated a Blue Zone Community.
