National Walk on Stilts Day is observed on July 27 of every year. Stilts are poles that are made with steps for people to rest their feet to stand on. Archaeological ruins show that stilt-walking was practiced in Ancient Greece in 6th century BC.
People traditionally practice these at the circus, festivals, street events, parades etc. This art of walking is slowly diminishing due to its reducing need for it.
Ayush of Grade VI D presented a story and renewed the memory of this Art of Stilt Walking.
