It's the Chamber of Commerce's annual 'Walk to Washington' trip.

The event is regarded as the state's premiere networking events.

It gets its name because many of the nearly 600 attendees spend their time walking through the aisles of the train cars, shaking hands and meeting peers.

While Gov. Chris Christie will not be among those riding the train, he headlines tonight's event in Washington.
