For the last few years the Brazos Animal Shelter has held a Weiner Fest raising money toward the general operating budget of the Brazos Animal Shelter. Last year they raised more than $20,000! The 2010 Fest money is to be applied for a new animal shelter for the Brazos Valley.
The Weiner Fest held October 9, 2010 at Wolf Pen Creek Park in College Station started with an 8 a.m. race for weiner dogs only. Then off to a “wanna-be-a-wieners” race for dogs weighing less than 35 pounds. There was also a costume contest!
Each year the event grows in size. There are more and more people and dogs registered for the event each year. In 2009 the crowd estimate was about 3,500 people. I feel confident there were even more people this year. The weather was gorgeous!
