Just when you thought it was safe, annual High Heel Drag Race schedules its tenth New Hope run

Illegal drag race

Update: Event postponed in anticipation of Hurricane Sandy.

Every year around Halloween time the crazies come out and run up and down the hill on West Mechanic Street. This year the

High Heel Race will be held on Sunday, October 28 at 4:30 p.m. Signups begin at 3 p.m. and the only requirement is that your heels measure at least 2.5 inches! Men in drag, women in animal costumes, dogs in heels — all are welcome. The delightful emcee Miss Pumpkin will be on hand, and the top three finishers will be showered in prizes from local businesses.

Free for everyone to enter; 3 p.m. signup, 4:30 p.m. race time.

Generously sponsored by Triumph Brewing Co. of New Hope and Karla’s Restaurant of West Mechanic Street. A bizarre, worthwhile and imminently winnable event.
