Downtown Mooresville’s Annual Wiener Race is this Saturday, October 6th!


If you have never seen a “Wiener Race” then you are in for a whole lot of fun this Saturday!  First, just being there in the midst of so many adorable dachshunds is worth the visit.  But, watching the dogs racing (I use that term loosely!) and their owners at the finish line doing anything to get their dog to run to them is hilarious:

The annual Mooresville Wiener Race is organized by the Mooresville Downtown Commission.  The event’s mission is to raise money for Friends of the Animals. Friends of the Animals is planning to build a state-of-the-art animal adoption and education center along with a spay/neuter clinic in Mooresville. This Year’s Participating Animal Advocates: Humane Society of Iredell , Doxie Acre Rescue, and Paws & Claws Feline Rescue.

This year’s races are limited to 180 dogs.  Races start at 11:00am but I highly recommend you get there early to get a good place along the race fence to see the dogs doing their best to figure out what they are supposed to be doing.  There are 4 categories:  Puppies, Juniors, Adults and Seniors.  You will see some actual racing in the Adult group but the puppies are adorable!

There will also be vendors selling barbecue, funnel cakes, slushies, pet insurance, scented candles and more but I must admit the best souvenir is the Mooresville Wiener Race T-Shirt.  I still have mine from several years ago.

If you want more incentive to attend, just Google You Tube Videos of Wiener Dog races!

Have fun!
