This unique event notice comes to us from David Churchill:
Experts on stilts will be competing in DC on Saturday and Sunday June 25-26 For Capital Bocking USA 2011
-- Highlights ------------
DC Terrain Stilts Challenge - Sat 11:30am-1pm (Freedom Plaza)
If you haven't seen dozens of people on stilts leaping, bounding, racing, and doing acrobatics on stilts while competing for points, then you will not want to miss this seemingly dangerous spectacle. Points will be earned for stilting stunts, from easy to inverted flips, grabs and tricks.
Jumping Over the US Capitol - Sat 3pm-4pm
Yes you can jump really high on stilts, and we walk down to get pictures as we jump "over" the US Capitol. (We jumped at the Washington Monument last year.)
