DC Dwelling: High Heel Race

Posted Nov 02 2012 7:57am

Every year right around Halloween, the annual high heel race takes place in DuPont in DC. Tons of men in their most fabulous drag costumes run several blocks down 17th Street in their stilettos in front of thousands of cheering spectators.

Fabulous costumes. Stilettos. Several block sprint. Must be the annual high heel run.

My friend Laurie has an apartment that overlooks the start line, so last night Emily and I headed over to enjoy some dinner before the race festivities got started.

Afterward we wandered outside to watch the parade of costumed men strutting their stuff up 17th Street to get to the start line.

There is only one word to describe the whole night. It was obviously fabulous.

Here are just a few of the many, many pictures I took.

If you’re a DC dweller, have you ever been to the high heel race? If you’re from anywhere else, does your town have anything like this?
