High Heel Race October 26th, 2011
Last night was the 25th running of the High Heel Race down 17th St in Dupont Circle. It happens every year on the Tuesday before Halloween, and it’s always one of my favorite nights of the year. It seems to get more and more crowded each year that we go, and this one was no exception, especially because the weather was actually nice last night. Perfect for watching divas parade around in heels! There were lots of amazing Black Swan costumes this year, and a group dressed as the Royal family/wedding, but my personal favorite was the cast of Drop Dead Gorgeous in their pageant costumes, including someone as Denise Richards with her Mount Rushmore look.
Me, Jill, and Matt, like nearly everyone else there, watched from a few rows back from the front, craning our necks for some glimpses of the lovely ladies. It’s always hard to get a good view unless you get there early. But my friend Riles took it upon herself to carry a 6 foot ladder over to watch the race from above the crowd, and she was nice enough to share her video with me, so check it out.
