Loonsday 2020 Goes Informal

The annual Loonsday Walk, previously rescheduled for August 1st, has been officially cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

“This will be the first time in 37 years that Loonsday has not happened,” organizers remarked. 

Despite the official cancellation, an informal walk is still taking place. Participants are encouraged to register and walk the route on their own. Interested walkers can still submit an entry form to have t-shirts ordered with this year’s winning design by Bailey Bordelon.

To avoid a large gathering, there will be no official start or finish line; however, a route map will be available via Google Maps, and Loons to follow will be marked on the road. Participants are encouraged to practice physical distancing and wear masks if they desire. 

Forms must be submitted by July 17th, and shirts will be distributed on August 1st from 9am-12pm outside of the Loon Lake Schoolhouse.
