Night life in the City of Clovis is fairly calm, with a few small bars seeing activity in the Old Town area of Clovis Avenue and Fifth Street. The 500 Club on the corner serves Basque food and has a poker parlor in the rear for card enthusiasts. Old Town has window shoppers regularly after stores close, and before 9:00 pm shoppers can walk the mall for a change of pace, or frequent one of the nightspots in one of the small shopping centers nearby. Clovis has venues of its own for events, as in the Big Hat Days festival put on by the Clovis Chamber of Commerce in early April each year, the Clovis Rodeo put on by the Rodeo Association late April and preceeded by the Rodeo Parade each year, numerous Antique and Collectible Fairs put on by Businesses of Old Town (BOOT)several times a year, the Strawberry Festival presented by and held at the Sierra Vista Mall each year, Clovis Balloon Festival by BOOT in spring every year, the Veteran's Day Parade, the Children's Light Parade each year, Christmas Tree Lighting, the Farmer's Market from May through September by BOOT, and many other occasions who may freely use the Veterans Administration Building facilities located on Fifth Street and Hughes Avenue just east of Clovis Avenue. Restaurants are a mixture of fine dining, casual, fast food and unique, and are a blend of many different cultures.
