Thousands of spectators flock to 17th St in Dupont Circle, Washington, DC, to watch costumed drag queens show off their elaborate outfits and race down 17th Street.

The DC Drag Queen Race is one of the Washington, DC area’s more unique Halloween events that has taken place annually since 1986, when a couple of drag queens challenged each other to see who could race from JR's Bar to Annie's Paramount Steakhouse, where they would down a shot, and then race back.
