High-octane few weeks ahead in Clovis

May 7, 2013 by  

As this weekend gets underway, it will be time to watch women teeter their way to the finish line during the 93.7 Kiss Country Pink Heels Stiletto Race 2013.

Held at the Old Town Clovis Farmers Market on 5th Street, the race begins at 7:00pm this Friday, May 10. Entrants must be age 18 or older and wear high heel shoes that are a minimum of 2.5 inches. Platform shoes are not allowed regardless of how high they are. They must also be decorated with pink items for the duration of the race.

The proceeds from this show will benefit the local Guardians of the Ribbon. Men are also welcome to join in the race but must wear high heel shoes as well. Both the men’s and the women’s races are 50 yard dashes.

If that is not enough exercise, those with energy to burn can join the Urban Taste walk on Saturday, June 1, at 11:00am at the Fulton Mall in Fresno. This event travels through shops and historical areas around the mall, which is located at 845 North Fulton Street, Fresno. For more information, call (559) 392-4471.

The tour is $35 online or $49 the day of the event and includes time to talk to local artists (and exchange digital business cards in the case of those participants involved in the arts themselves), tea and fruit, exclusive access to historical buildings, art viewing, and juicy gourmet hamburgers. The walk lasts approximately two hours, so appropriate footwear is a must.
