Reserve the date for the annual urban dog sleigh race. Dog sleigh, really? Not exactly. The tradition started in Alaska with real dogs, sleighs and mushers. Then it also moved into urban areas with people as dogs and shoping carts as sleighs.
The local area bars serve as the intermediate water...er....beer stations.
It's a race, and there are raffle prizes and SLC knowledge trivia . But the ultimate fun is in getting a team together 4-10 people, creating a theme. Decorating the shopping cart and ourselves accordingly, and let our hair down or is it- our spirits loose? :)
You can be a total teetotaler and still enjoy this event.
Look up the event page on facebook, by following the link posted in comments by Josh. There are prizes this year, but there are NO raffle tix to purchase prior to the event.
More details to come, as we draw near.
But sign up early and get the teams going, as it takes some time to plan and execute the team name/theme/costume ideas.
Apparently, legalities caused the name of the event to be changed to what it reads now. Nothing else has changed though. :)
