Last night, I attended the 25th High Heel Race on 17th St, NW. It's a hilarious evening of drag queens in towering heels and wigs, jovial spectators and a three block sprint. It kicks off Halloween in DC and it's a beloved tradition. One of my friends lives on 17th St. and hosts an annual party. We had a birds eye view of the festivities and it was a fantastic evening. My favorite drag queens were the black and white swans made out of balloons. They were spectacular!
