The 17th Street High Heel Race returned to the Dupont Circle neighborhood Tuesday night bringing thousands out for one of the city’s most cherished Halloween week traditions.

The race is really secondary to the festive parade of high-heeled men in drag and costumes who walk up and down 17th Street before the race, posing for pictures with fans and otherwise strutting their stuff.
