The 5th Annual KTBA Spring Walkabout was a huge success! 27 local businesses got together to create a day filled with fun, free activities, giveaways, and opportunities for some incredible prizes! All of this in the name of supporting local businesses and getting to know our community in Kensington and Talmadge.

With our check-in app, we could track nearly 1,200 scans into local businesses. With the verification of more than 100 participating groups, we estimate around 300 community members showed up, and for that we are filled with gratitude.
