Start your weekend off just right with the grand prix of dachshund races, the 16th Annual Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals at the Los Alamitos race track. On Saturday, July 9th, ninety-eight dachshunds compete in thirteen races for the title of “Fastest Wiener in the West.” While the race track opens at 9:30 a.m., the first dachshund race is set to start at 6:15 p.m. and the championship race is scheduled for approximately 9:15 p.m. Tickets are only $3, and as always, you will want to come a little early to get a good seat.
Throw on your lederhosen and continue your weekend with another dachshund race on Sunday, July 10th at the Old World Village in Huntington. They will be celebrating German Heritage Day from 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. with free food for the first 500 people. The wiener races are set to begin at 3:00p.m. but you’ll want to be sure to get there early for a good seat (it’s recommended that you get there by 2:00 p.m.). Tickets are only $1 and parking is free.
This is a low cost way to have some good ol’ family fun this weekend. So have fun, stay cool and show support for those hardworking pups!
