Astounding Stilt Walking Events
In China, there is an old custom called "walking on stilts"
is a performance which employs two lengths of wooden sticks over three
long to one's feet and walking on them. It is also termed "tied-on long
feet".This kind of performance can be traced back to very ancient
It is described in "Leizi"(a book), "There was a man named Lanzi
in the state of Song (circa 7th century B.C.) who
entertained the first
Song emperor wit his feet of walking and running with two wooden poles
than himself attached to his lower legs. Performers are
legnedary characters and perform with long poles attached to their
feet. It is a
holiday folk performance, especially popular in some country areas.
- 1411 - Date of Namur (Belgium) town ordinance dealing with "Echasseur" or "jousting while wearing stilts"! Opposing teams of jousters, the Mélans and the Avresses, battle each other in a wild melee of blows using shoulders and elbows; shoving, jabbing, blocking and tripping their opponents. We observed one such enactmentat the 2002 Dallas Texas State Fair.
This extraordinary sport is still practiced today.

- In 1891 Sylvain
Dornon stilt walked from Paris to Moscow via Vilno (1830 miles) in
either 50 stages (36.6 miles a day) or 58 days (31.55 miles a
day). Joe Bowen says that there were rest stops that
lengthened the overall time.
- 1892 M. Garisoain of Bayonne France stilt walked "the last 4.97
into Biarritz inm, 42minutes (7.1 MPH).
The Landes 273 mile stilt race held in France at an average speed
of 4.4 MPH!

Across Niagara falls on stilts!
Francois Gravelet, aka Charles Blondin, "the great Blondin",
was the first and possibly the best known of Niagara's funambulists !
(tightrope walkers) and also was considered to be one of the greatest
tightrope walkers of all time. He was also known as
"Daredevil wire walker" and popularly known as "the Prince of Manila"
(the rope he used was made of Manila.)
for more pictures and an Article on the life and times of Charles
Depending on where he
mounted the rope, its length measured either 900 or 1200
feet. "He crossed many times, at one time pushing a
wheelbarrow, at another carrying a man upon his back, and again on
stilts." This last, the crossing on stilts, was "when (Albert
Edward) the Prince of Wales came to Niagara to see him".
Sources include Stretch’s copy
of THE GRAPHIC Magazine dated February
27, 1897. And, “Niagara: Chisholm's Complete Guide
to the Grand Cataract" copyright 1891 And searching the ‘net
with GOOGLE.com .
While searching, I noticed that many homilies, or sermons, use Blondin
as inspiration. When crossing Niagara with a wheelbarrow, he
would ask for a volunteer to ride in the wheelbarrow by asking
“ who believes . . .?" . And while many "believed"
he could do the stunt, none would volunteer to be his
passenger! So he would trundle his manager across in the wheelbarrow!
Look for my own sermons, homilies, and
essays on stilt walking at .
I’ll be taking my inspiration from the lives of some of the
folks you see here, and from my own experiences stilt walking.

Gary Ensmenger hired as fruit picker. Uses stilts 7 feet in
height to pick peaches at the orchards of Darrell Hurst in Sebastapol,
Ca. . Darrell Hurst had purchased 50 pairs of "Orchard Stilts" built by
Wayne (father) and Dan (son) Demmings from Clovis,
CA. The orchard stilts only came in two
sizes, 4 1/2 feet and 7 foot tall. In those days the stilts
sold for $100 a pair and that was considered expensive.
Orchard Stilts are 10 time faster than any other method of picking
