It's the annual race that determines who's got the fastest wiener -- wiener dog, that is. Fleet-footed dachshunds compete on a straight track in three divisions based on age -- Cocktail Wienies, Ball Park Franks and Hot Dogs -- for prizes, praise and cheers from the throng. The entry fee is $10 for racing dogs, free for spectators. You can register at the park starting at 10 a.m. race day, or register in advance (recommended) at www.mardigrasinc.com.
