Running of the Wieners 2017
50! dedicated Wiener dogs ran the track this year, with glorious costumes and well-hatted observers. The meet-up was at Brim on Fifth Street; the wiener parade trotted down Fifth Street to the Trolley Stop, and onto Clay Street. The track, 100 ft, had room for 8 runners, with their persons at each end. There were 7 races and everyone got a prize or food. Details and video can be seen – on Facebook, Instagram, and on TV 2, and Amelia Robinson did a great recapsuling of the event with her live feed. #OregonDistrictWienerRace #OregonDistrictDerbyDay #WienerDogRace
