Are You Celebrating Walking on Stilts Day?

Stilts, Walking on Stilts DayToday is Walk on Stilts Day! Stilts are posts, poles or pillars used to allow a person to stand at a higher space above ground. When you see performers walking on stilts, these poles are designed with steps for the feet to rest on or straps to attach to the legs for walking. It certainly takes agility and great balance to be able to walk on these poles. Dancers and performers in festivals, parades, circus acts or in the theater are some of those who have mastered the art of walking on stilts.
