Rumble in the Jungle

Saturday, Aug 20: The Running of the Chihuahuas

What has 429 legs and slobbers all over? The 143 Chihuahuas and chi-mixes that are racing this Saturday, Aug. 20, starting at 8:45am and going till 5pm for the Running of the Chihuahuas at Balloon Fiesta Park. With over 10 races, inflatable jumpers, a beer garden, face painting, best costumed dog (any breed) and a dog and owner look-alike contest (any breed), this looks like the event of the year to me. Tickets are $10-$15 for general entry and to enter the contests. To put your tiny guard dog in the race costs $35. I can tell you one thing: All the animals here will win Cutest Dag Evar in my book.
