DETROIT (AP) - Detroit has joined the list of cities around the world that are planning to host a Jane’s Walk festival this spring.

In participating cities, free walking tours are held on the first weekend of May each year and are led by locals who want to create a space for residents to talk about what matters to them in the places they live and work.

Jane’s Walk has expanded since its inception in Toronto in 2007. Last May, more than 800 walks were held in more 100 than cities in 22 countries. This year’s festival will take place May 2-4.

It’s currently recruiting volunteers and participants in Detroit.

Jane’s Walk honors the late writer and urban activist Jane Jacob.
