The 17th Street High Heel Race is Tuesday, Oct. 29 from 7-10 p.m. The public is welcome and admission is free. 

A D.C. tradition for more than 30 years, attendees can cheer on competitors racing a quarter-mile in festive heels or full drag and make up. Always held on the Tuesday before Halloween, thousands of spectators pack Dupont Circle to watch hundreds of costumed drag artists show off their often extravagant creations. Participants gather around 6 p.m. Race begins at 9.
