If you happened to be walking around Northwest D.C. last night, you might have seen drag queens in all kinds of costumes and towering heels making their way toward 17th Street NW; I happened to see one such towering heel get stuck in a sidewalk grate.

The 17th Street High Heel Race celebrated its 27th year last night, with Mayor Vincent Gray in attendance as grand marshal. Check out some photos from Post photographer Sarah L. Voisin.
