Thousands of people gathered Tuesday night along 17th Street NW  to watch a drag race unlike any other!

In its 29th year, DC’s High Heel Race is one of the most creative and exciting traditions around.

The race has taken place every year since 1986 in Dupont Circle the week before Halloween. Participants are urged to come in drag, and required to wear a minimum of 2 inch heels for the quarter-mile race.
