Once again, Canterbury Park is getting patriotic with two days of festivities. Things kick off on Monday, where in addition to racing throughout the evening there will be free pony rides for kids, face painting, and a petting zoo. Local country group Maiden Dixie will provide live music, and the evening will conclude with a large fireworks show. Festivities continue on Tuesday with free hot dogs for everyone all day. Watch adults compete in a hot dog eating contest, while little ones will attempt to scarf down cocktail weenies. The day will also feature mini races with dachshunds and corgis, which should be pretty freaking adorable.
