Festivall Charleston West Side Wiener Dog Race 2010.
Every year as a part of FestivAll Charleston, the city's West Side (Best Side) plays host to the wild and wonderful wiener dog races. Yesterday the wife and I decided to attend because it's only about a half a mile from our house and we have a love for four legged friends. We made the jaunt down to the track and got there just in time for the costume contest. A wiener dog dressed as Ricky Bobby from the movie Talladega Nights was crowned the winner. Immediately after the dogs were undressed and participated in the races. There were seven or eight heats, and a winner was finally crowned. It didn't really matter, though. They all looked the same without the costumes.
