High Heel Race 2013 Video

Hundreds of drag queens strutted their stuff down 17th Street in the Dupont Circle neighborhood Tuesday night. And the crowds lined the street to watch annual High Heel Race.

The event is said to have started as a bet between friends. They ran from J.R.'s Bar and Grill to Annie's Steak House back in 1986. The race has taken place the Tuesday before Halloween every year since.
