The Savannah Morning News and the Savannah Waterfront Association presented the 2011 WIENER DOG RACES on Oct. 1 at Morrell Park on River Street in downtown Savannah. The annual event during Oktoberfest benefited local pet assistance charities and attracts hundreds of dachshunds and their owners to Morrell Park in downtown Savannah.
Race heats will be 10 dachshunds per heat. At least one non-competitive heat will be for mixed-breed dachshunds, the Almost Wiener Run. Registration rates will apply.
Returning for 2011: Costume contest for wiener dogs. Prizes will be awarded; no registration cost to enter.
