Retama Park Hosting Wiener Dog Race to Benefit Dachshund Rescues 

Calling all wiener dogs!

Retama Park Race Track is bringing a quirky event to the San Antonio-area this Saturday, October 27. In the spirit of Oktoberfest, "Dachtoberfest" will take over the Selma race track from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Dachshunds, often referred to as "wiener dogs," will race on the track with proceeds of the event benefitting the Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas. Admission will be $3, with the races being accompanied by costume contests for pups, kids and adults.

The family-friendly event will also offer food trucks and vendors.

If you've got a weenie dog that you think has what it takes, be sure to check out the registration requirements and race rules.

And may the best weenie win.
