  • Lilac Festival ~Claremore, OK

    Wiener Dog race.

    Need I say more?

    Okay, I guess I will say more.

    We went to this festival purely for the wiener dog race. It was a little far for us to drive for one event but it was worth it!


    On their mark.

    Get set.



    Do you think he saw a hot dog?

    Do wiener dogs run toward or away from hot dogs?

    Oh, the puzzling questions of the universe.

    Oscar is gone.

    Okay, so THIS dog was not named Oscar but I know that one of the dogs was called that!

    Everyone got a little chuckle out of that.

    More little ears flapping.

    So cute and funny.

    It was all just pretty entertaining.

    This is how they got them to run, treats, toys, and LOTS of yelling!

    I liked this guy pointing out the way to the dog.

    Maybe more of them needed that.

    Or maybe all the people on the sidelines with food were a little too much of a distraction.


    Where is the ref?


    There was a band also and I have to say they did an awesome job.

    For my boys though, this was what it was all about.

    And this.

    A celebrity!

    The boys went nuts for it. They also kept talking like Thomas and friends were real people.

    “Why is he stopping Thomas?”

    “Why is he in Thomas’ way?”

    I thought they were going to fight the guy in charge of the trains when he stopped them to fix something.

    Not that they attack strangers.

    Oh wait, they do…

    This is what I do when I am going to a festival.

    I go to their site and look up their event list (if they have one).

    If possible I will even look at pictures from the previous year and see what looks interesting.

    That way, even a really small festival can be fun.

    Just be sure to give yourself enough time to get to the event, I might have missed a turtle race or two by not doing this.

    It is really sad to miss a turtle race.

    If you live in the Claremore area go to the Lilac Festival next year and watch some wieners run.

    It will make you smile.

    I promise.

      Looks like a great time. Was that a Yorkie I saw watching the weiner race?

      Possibly, lots of people brought their dogs. Maybe he was dreaming of his chance to shine.
