Oakland Together COVID-19 Tribute Walk
The COVID-19 Tribute Walk that happened from March 10th – 21st was an immersive light display at Waterford Oaks County Park that paid homage to those we've lost to the COVID-19 pandemic, gave thanks to the people who have continued to risk their lives in the face of the coronavirus to keep us healthy and safe, and expressed gratitude for all of those who have helped us through the last year.
The Tribute Walk provided a memorable experience to mark one year after the first case of coronavirus was reported in Oakland County. The illuminated, paved path followed a half-mile journey through sections focused on remembering those we've lost and giving us a glimpse of what we have to be thankful for as we move forward together past the pandemic.
