Hawaii Wiener Derby

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii Wiener Derby announces the running of the 4th Annual 2012 Hawaii Wiener Derby at the Hawaiian Humane Society Canine Game Day to be held Saturday, May 26th, 10:00am - 2:00pm at Thomas Square in Honolulu.

The Hawaii Wiener Derby is held annually at the Hawaiian Humane Society Canine Game Day, a free event to thank the community for their generous donations to the Hawaiian Humane Society's causes. The dachshund race is a family event centralized in the middle of the Game Day held at Thomas Square. The race attracts a large majority of Hawaii's dachshund community and their friends, family and supporters from every island, as well as providing hilarious entertainment for those attending the Game Day with all breeds of dogs.

This year Gov. Linda Lingle will be joining us between 10am-11am to be our Guest Master of Ceremonies along with our awesome MC Lil Guy. Last year over 125 dachshunds participated in the race, and Hawaii Wiener Derby anticipates that this year's attendance will be nearer to 150-200 dachshunds and up to 500 of their fans.
