Who’s the fastest wiener doggo in the District?
We’re looking forward to finding out when the annual wiener dog race returns to Yards Park for Oktoberfest.
The 6th Annual Wiener 500 is on Saturday, September 30 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., and features Sam Adams Octoberfest, music by 7 Deadlies, plenty of food for munching, and, of course, Dachshunds dashing to find out who’s top dog.
In 2016, the race saw nearly 100 of the elongated puppers compete. This year the speediest dogs will race to win $500 in cash and prizes. If you think your Dachshund could win the race be sure to register in advance here. Don’t have a wiener-dog? That’s okay, all doggos are can attend, watch the race, and compete in the costume contest.
Humans, the Wiener 500 has a competition for you, too! Sam Adams is hosting a beer hoisting contest, so if you think you have a strong beer hoisting arm sign up here. Race proceeds will be donated to Humane Rescue Alliance.
