See Photos From this Year’s Wiener 500

Check out photos from the seventh annual Wiener 500 at ontaponline.com/photos/. Oktoberfest kicked off in DC at Yards Park with the seventh annual Wiener 500 dachshund dash. The crowd watched the races and dog costume contest on a 17-foot jumbotron, enjoyed a live DJ and ice cold Spaten beer, and participated in the stein-hoisting competition. All race proceeds benefited the Humane Rescue Alliance. Photos: Mike Kim
