GRAND JUNCTION– Today’s the day! Everyone is gearing up for the annual Men in Heels race, including businesses near the event.

The race begins at 5:30 pm and will be on Colorado Ave between 4th and 5th Streets.

With all of the activity just one block over with the Market on Main every week, businesses on Colorado Ave look forward to Men in Heels every year, in addition to the weekly Market on Main crowd.

It’s great exposure for the businesses, and also a chance to celebrate the community coming together to benefit Hilltop’s Latimer House, and spread domestic abuse awareness.

Store owners are excited to watch the race and to open their doors for anyone who wants to come in and shop between races.

Tune in tonight at 5&6 to hear from more businesses along Colorado Avenue. You can also catch coverage on Facebook Live by searching “@krextv” on Facebook.
