Running of the Wieners - Oktoberfest Zinzinnati
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
Cool! Here are some pics from the annual Running of the Wieners held at the beginning of Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, today September 20, 2013 at 12 noon. I did not have the best view, and with my son on my neck, it was hard to capture nice pics, so before the final race, my son and I headed to the top of the Carew Tower observation deck to get some final shots!
This was the seventh-annual Hillshire Farm Running of the Wieners. Congratulations to Mitzi and her owner April Hagler of Westwood, Ohio
They won a case of Samuel Adams! Lucky for the owner! :) Sorry Mitzi! :) Hundreds of people watched as Mitzi was crowned the Wiener winner 2013!
A portion of the proceeds from the race activities, will be donated to a dachshund rescue charity.
Oktoberfest Zinzinnati is an annual weekend festival held in Cincinnati, Ohio during late September. Based on the original German Oktoberfest, It's the largest Oktoberfest celebration,
