Wiener Dog Derby 

When: Sun., Feb. 4, 2 p.m. 2018
Price: free for spectators
Perhaps you've wisely chosen a dachshund as your companion, one who is as fast as greased lightning and thrives on competition. In this case, you should consider registering your dachsie in the Wiener Dog Derby. For a $10 fee, your dog can compete against five other dogs on the 30-foot-long track at Wiener Stadium in Soulard Market Park (South Eighth Street and Lafayette Avenue; starting at 2 p.m. Sunday, February 4. The race uses the elimination format (winning dogs in each heat move on to the next round, while the also-rans are done for the day) and dogs are sorted into one of four classes based on age. The ultimate winner will be crowned champion, although all other competitors will be winners in their own right — no dog is ever a loser in anything, because dogs are awesome.
