High Heel Race this Tuesday
The DC Drag Queen Race is one of the District's many Halloween events. Each year on the Tuesday before Halloween, thousands of spectators flock to Dupont Circle to watch costumed drag queens show off their elaborate outfits and race down 17th Street. The informal block party lasts a few hours and attracts a diverse crowd.

Race Time: Begins at 9 p.m. Participants gather as early as 6 p.m. to watch the parade. So grab a bite at dinner on 17th and stay for the festivities.
Get the full skinny from Brightest Young Things on last year's race HERE. Hotness, pure hotness. I love this event. Get there early to claim your spot along the race line.
