With their trademark ruffled crinoline skirts and white clogging shoes, the Mulekicker Cloggers have become a staple at area fairs and festivals.
The group once again will be performing at the Fulton Street Fair at 5 p.m. on June 16 at the intersection of Fifth and Court streets.
According to longtime members of the Mulekickers, performances such as that one are only a part of the fun for a group they describe as a family.
“I enjoy the dancing energy, I love the music and I love to go perform in front of an audience — especially a hometown audience,” said Linda Kronk, who first joined the group in 1987. “
Founding member Rita Weber said she also enjoys “the energy, the fun around it, the dancing, the camaraderie.”
“We’ve become a family. We support each other,” Weber said. “It’s just all about fun. It’s fun to go out and surprise people with the things you can do.”
