High Heel Drag Race on Mechanic Street in New Hope 2010
By Charlie Sahner
New Hope's West Mechanic Street was packed Sunday night with Halloween revelers and spectators of the borough's Annual High Heel Drag Race.
Contestants had to race uphill to the top of the block near the canal, then back down the street. The event, sponsored by TearDrop Memories, required that participants wear high heels and carry antique bird cages while running.
Prizes were provided by local merchants, who were quite generous this year.
The legal drag race was immediately followed by a parade of zombies sponsored by Delia's Makeup and Theatrical Supplies.
The whole affair was creepy beyond belief, and the crowd ate it up, so to speak.
Only in New Hope!
