Fun Days velebration features “Drag” racing

“Drag” racing is coming to Clallam Bay-Sekiu this weekend.

No, top fuel or funny cars won't be racing through the streets Saturday, organizers are certain their event will bring some excitement and humor to the communities' annual Fun Days Celebration.

This “drag” race will feature men rushing to put on women's clothing and racing across the Clallam Bay High School football field.

“It will be every man's opportunity to get in touch with his feminine side,” said Fun Days' publicist Cathy Walde, anticipating the “drag” race will be one of the highlights of the Fun Days Celebration.
