West Windsor Arts Council run/walk set for June 1

The West Windsor Arts Council is helping the community kick off the summer with a one-mile fun walk on June 1.

The event begins at 11 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m. at the arts center, which is located on 952 Alexander Road in Princeton Junction. The event includes a “dress as your favorite artwork or artist” costume contest, according to council officials.

Prizes include $50 or $25 gift certificates or art kits for kids. Participants will gather craft items along the route before returning to the Arts Center to pick up their walk certificate and enjoy art activities, a picnic lunch and music.

Proceeds from the ArtWalk support the Arts Council education programs benefiting young children, teens and adults, as well as multidisciplinary arts programming for the community, according to officials.

The day of June 2 is slated for the rain date.
