Dachshunds can’t cover ground as quickly as horses can, but the frantic effort they put in at Canterbury’s annual wiener dog race is part of the fun. This Labor Day, these majestic (and stubby) creatures will take to the track to race against each other. There can be only one champion, so 72 canines will square off in seven different heats to determine who’s top dog. In addition to buffets and bars inside Canterbury, Monday will be especially family-friendly, with face painting, pony rides, and a petting zoo open until 6 p.m.
