Just when we thought the action at Oktoberfest Northwest had reached a pinnacle...
Oktoberfest Northwest is proud to announce the 8th annual Running of the Wieners.
On Sunday, October 11, take your place alongside the track at Longbody Acres at Oktoberfest Northwest and cheer for the dashing dachshund of your choice! Starting at noon, daschunds of all shapes and sizes (well, okay, all sizes anyway...probably only the one shape) will compete in various races and competitions.
The races are organized by Wiener Tales, who have extensive experience in all aspects of the game. We're extremely grateful to have them as a part of our team- we know enough to stick to the bratwurst side of "hot dogs!"
Do you have a dachshund who'd like to sprint their way to glory? Click here for details and to pre-register!
