ABOUT THE LOCAL EVENT

We are still on, rain or shine! Can't wait to see you. 

We are so excited to see you at March for Babies tomorrow!

As a reminder, March for Babies will take place rain or shine. In the event of severe weather, and if it is unsafe to hold March for Babies, we will alert you with updates right here on the event page.

We are hopeful all will be well, but please check this site on the morning of your event—we will post notices if walk details change.

FIRST HORIZON PARK WILL HAVE A SECURITY CHECK POINT: PLEASE MAKE NOTE

A clear bag policy will be in place for all events, limiting contact between staff and guests. One clear bag – either a one-gallon Ziploc style bag or a 12" x 12" x 6" clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC bag – plus a small clutch/purse no larger than 5" x 9" in size. Exceptions will be made for medically necessary items and/or diaper bags after proper inspection and screening.

TIMELINE:
8:00AM—Registration and March for Babies Town Open
9:00AM—Superhero Sprint around the bases for children ages 1-10

Walk occurs immediately following Opening Ceremonies (approx. 10:00AM)

ROUTE: Our new and improved March for Babies route will start with a lap around the concourse, followed by laps on the field! Each lap is approximately 1/3 mile. Complete up to 5 laps on the field, or call it a day after your lap around the concourse. It’s up to you!

PARKING: Several free lots are available near the stadium. Several events will be taking place in the area so we recommend leaving plenty of time for parking.
