Halloween is one of the most awaited holidays not only for kids but for grown-ups as well, who can finally put on their costumes and have some fun. Almost every neighbourhood in Washington holds its own Halloween event. One of the most popular is the DC High Heel Drag Queen Race held on October 25th at 9 p.m. between 17th and S Street, NW Washington DC. This parade is for adults and attracts a large crowd of spectators.

The National Zoo is a great place to visit on Halloween as it features special exhibitions of spiders, bats, snakes, and other spooky animals. If this is not scary enough you can visit the Night of the Living Zoo. This night show for adults only lets you enjoy the zoo by moonlight. This bone-chilling show includes palm readers, fire eaters, talking bats, and illusionists.
