Registration open for Running of the Wieners race
Registration is now open for Oktoberfest Zinzinnati’s 10th anniversary Running of the Wieners, September 15, 11 a.m., on the appropriately named Race Street between Second and Third Streets in downtown Zinzinnati.
100 wiener dogs will enter. Each dachshund, outfitted in its provided hot dog bun costume, will run in a 75-foot heat. The wiener of the finals will be crowned top dog at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati! Sign up your dachshund now.
“Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is looking for the fast and the furriest to compete in the 10th anniversary of the Running of the Wieners,” said Cynthia Oxley, director of Oktoberfest Zinzinnati. “The field will fill quickly, so please register your wiener as soon as possible.”
Beginning at 11 a.m., join us for a hot dog or an after-wiener drink in the Herr of the Dog Party Zone at Third and Race Streets.
