“Walk Like Madd” Brought Crowds to Shannon Oaks

Smiley face

The actual walking portion of the “Walk Like Madd” Mothers Against Drunk Driving event in Sulphur Springs on September 29 began after dark with a glow walk at 8pm. However, two hours prior to that, crowds were already flocking in to the grounds of Shannon Oaks Church. Numerous food and cold drink vendors were set up alongside a burger grilling team from Clayton Homes. A barrel train and comic entertainment by clowns from the local Clown Alley helped to keep the atmosphere positive for the 10th annual Walk Like Madd in Hopkins County. Live music for listening and dancing was provided by a very upbeat DJ, and the Blue Blazes Drill members and the Sulphur Springs High School Cheerleaders performed some high-energy routines for the crowds of supporters. During the evening, most people strolled out to observe the Victim Tribute Area which was graphically illustrated by dozens of pairs of shoes, depicting victims of drunk driving crashes. Organizers presented a brief program about prevention of drunk and drugged driving just before the walk began.
