Gates Open at 5 pm Rescued Dog Reunion begins around 6:30 pm Dachshund Races begin at 7 pm
All dogs must be current on shots and be on a leash at all times except when racing. Each dog needs two humans! One person will be at the start line and one at the finish line. The winner in each heat will move to the finals. Final races will be over around 9 pm.
Thundering across the turf at the Festival Gardens in Nelson Park, over 100 dashing Dachshunds dueled for the title of 2012 Grand Champion Racer. As hundreds of people cheered and the sun dipped below the horizon, Becker (raced by the girls from Hendrick Home) was the fastest Dachshund in West Texas AGAIN! Becker also won in 2011. Come see if he can hold onto the championship, or pass the torch to a new racer!
