Walk Away from Drugs, expo set for Wednesday

KINGMAN - Over 2,000 people are expected to participate Wednesday in the Kingman Area Meth Coalition's 5th Annual Walk Away From Drugs and Keep Kingman Safe Public Safety Expo.

Participants will gather at one of three starting locations: Smiths, 3490 Stockton Hill Road, Fire Fighters Park, 2001 Detroit Ave., and the lot just east of Mother Road Harley Davidson, 2501 Beverly Ave., at 5:30 p.m. At approximately 5:45, the participants will begin the walk and end it at the Centennial Park near the north softball fields, where a DJ will provide music and free hotdogs and drinks will be available for participants.

Informational booths and public safety displays will be set up and there will be a safe place to dispose of old and unwanted prescription drugs. Also, awards will be given to coloring contest and poster contest winners.

In addition, there will be random drawings for prizes for those school-age kids who attend.
