It's race day!  I can barely steady my paws to write this blog, I'm so excited.  Arguably, the dogs take center "stage" at German Fest this afternoon, with the Doxie costume contest at 1 p.m. and the wiener dog races at 3:15 p.m.  The competition will be fierce this year, with all 50 entries were filled, but I am keeping my eye on the prize.

Since I had the honor of winning last year's races, I will be catching a ride in the parade at 2 p.m., which winds through the entire grounds.

Also, Trachtenschau, a fashion show featuring traditional German clothing, will be held Saturday at 5 p.m. on the Leinenkugel's stage.

For a complete list of today's entertainment, download the stage schedule from German Fest's website.  Most music stages open with live entertainment at noon, so get there early, enjoy a brat and a beer, and make sure to watch me race!


The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
