Unofficial-Kick off Cinco de Mayo at 2nd Annual Running of the Chihuahuas

Calling all Chihuahuas!

From 11am – 2pm on Saturday, May 4th at Kastles Stadium on the Southwest Waterfront. $500 in cash prizes will be awarded to the speediest dogs!

Don’t have a Chihuahua? You can still take part in the fun with all breed contests for best dressed and best trick! Music, food, water and beverages will be on site.

Deadline to register online is Thursday, May 2nd, walkups on race day accepted until all spots are full. We did hit capacity last year! $20 per dog to race, no admission fee. This is a family friendly event, but you must be 21+ to drink beer or attend the after party. All race fees will be donated to Southwest Dog Park efforts. To enter, click here!

All dogs must be current on vaccinations and leashed when not racing. Unruly dogs will be excused, owners must pick up after their pets. For contest rules and information, please visit Rain date of Saturday, May 11. To help sponsor or to get involved call On Tap Magazine at[masked]-0500.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
