High Heel Race 2011

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!Black swans balloons White swan balloons Hhrace the scene
