The Volkssportverein Friedrichsburg club welcomes you to Fredericksburg this coming weekend (well, Sunday and Monday, which is sort of the weekend) to celebrate New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day with some great walking opportunities.
What better way to say goodbye to 2023 and welcome in 2024 than to walk with friends and join in the festivities!
On Sunday, December 31st, walkers may choose between a morning walk or evening walk, or they may do both. The morning walk is the Cross Mountain YRE, and registration is from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. Walkers should be finished by 4:00 pm. The evening walk is the Pilgrimage YRE, and registration for that walk is from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Bring your flashlights and enjoy the Christmas lights!
The Monday walk on January 1st is the St. Mary’s Cemeteries YRE, with a start window of 8:00 am to 11:00 am. Walkers should finish this walk by 2:00 pm.
The picture above was taken by Martin Callahan at the Pilgrimage walk last year. On the left is Doug E. with Rudy, and next to him is Frank E. They are standing in front of the Vereins Kirche Museum in the Marktplatz.
For all the details, please see the walk brochure below.
