What is this holiday about?
You don't see a holiday like this everyday and come to think of it you don't get to see stilt walking everyday either! That's why we think this holiday was created so we wouldn't forget about this ancient art and remember the fun of walking on stilts. If you've ever been curious about stilt walking then today is the day to give it a try.

How is this Holiday Celebrated?
This holiday is celebrated by learning the history of stilt walking. Many
organizations and clubs will host stilt parties where everyone can try their hand
(or should we say leg) at stilt walking. Party food is a must and so is first aid
kits and spotters.

The local festivals of Anguiano (La Rioja, Spain) feature a dance on stilts in which
dancers go down a stepped street while turning. Other stilts walking and dancing
festivals are held in Deventer, Netherlands in early July each year, and in Namur,
Belgium.

If your looking for a unique party to host then think about a stilt party.
You may need to plan early because it may take a bit of time to find
and buy your stilts.

Fun Facts About Stilts:
Stilts are poles, posts or pillars used to allow a person or structure to stand at a distance above the ground. Walking stilts are poles equipped with steps for the feet to stand on, or straps to attach them to the legs, for the purpose of walking while elevated above a normal height. In flood plains, and on beaches or unstable ground, buildings are often constructed on stilts to protect them from damage by water, waves or shifting soil or sand. Stilts have been used for many hundreds of years.
