The Drag Heel Race

Since 1986, typically held on the Tuesday before Halloween, thousands of spectators flock near Dupont Circle to cheer on elaborately costumed drag queens race down a quarter-mile stretch of 17th Street NW in heels no less than two inches high. The race commences at 9:00 p.m., but the real fun starts by 7:00 p.m. as the contestants parade up and down the route showing off their outfits beforehand. This is perhaps DC's most unique Halloween tradition.
