Big Hat Days – April 14 & 15
The Clovis Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for their Big Hat Days event on April 14th and 15th. We met with the Chamber on the age-old issue of booth locations on Pollasky between 4th and 5th Streets.
We have been told that this “up against the curb” positioning is necessary to allow a 17 foot clearance for a fire truck to get onto the block in case one of the buildings in this block should catch on fire. This block is different than other streets due to the landscaping spaces at the intersections and at the crosswalk in the middle of the block.
The Chamber was willing to look at the arrangement with fresh eyes, so we met with Fire Chief Lee Kraft and staff members to take a new look at the problem to see if there was a way to make merchants in this block happy. A solution came up and it will be examined and hopefully implemented for future Big Hat Days and ClovisFest. We felt it was unfair to ask the Chamber to rearrange the booths at this late date as their sale of booths has already taken place.
B.O.O.T. will follow up after Big Hat Days to see if the new plan can be put into practice for next year and for ClovisFest this fall.
