Big Hat Days Are Here!

 

The Clovis BIG Hat Days are this weekend - sponsored by Table Mountain Casino!  The weather will be perfect, the booths are sold out with a long waiting list, and we’re looking forward to a great weekend.

Craft and food booths will line Pollasky from 3rd to 8th Streets. Old favorites are returning with a lot of fresh new faces from across the country.

In the food court and along the streets you’ll find ice cream and strawberry treats, mini-donuts and corn dogs, Italian ice and kettle korn as well as shaved ice.  There will also be traditional barbeques, Indian tacos, Chinese food, and French fries. 

The bands are lined up for the Budweiser Beer Garden and the carnival is ready to set up.

Remember that there is free admission and free parking. Please leave your pets at home
