New Hope Celebrates is hosting its 17th annual High Heel Drag Race on Sunday, Oct. 24, at 3 p.m. on W. Mechanic Street in New Hope. A long standing tradition and highlight of the fall season in New Hope, this year’s theme is “Hallow Queens & Glamour Ghouls.”
Hosted by New Hope’s own Miss Pumpkin, race participants are dressed in costumes and wear 3” or taller high heels. Runners carry a pumpkin up the hill on W. Mechanic Street, decorate the pumpkin and race back down the hill. This is an all-inclusive event, representing New Hope’s diversity and acceptance of all.
“We were not able to hold this event in 2020, so we’re excited to see our community come together in a safe manner to celebrate all the ghouls, goblins and ghosts of New Hope,” said Matt Hanson, president of NHC. “It’s going to be a fun afternoon of heels and costumes.”
There is a $25 non-refundable registration fee required in advance and limited to the first 15 people. All participants should arrive at 2:30 p.m. to check in. All proceeds go to New Hope Celebrates. This event will be held rain or shine.
