Labor Day Monday is always one of my favorite days of the year. No, not because I have the day off and can relax on the couch watching Netflix all day, but because that day kicks off Derby Week at Harrah's Louisiana Downs.

The best way to kick off this fun and exciting week is to let wiener dogs race each other for your enjoyment. That's right, The Wiener Dog races are back on September 5th and I'm happy to once again be hosting this hilariously fun event.

The event begins at Harrah's at 11:00 AM with he first heat of wieners racing at 12:00 PM. There's also heats for children of all ages to run on the track.

It's fun for the entire family with a free children's area set up on the racing apron. Face painting will be available for an additional charge. Food Trucks from across the region will also be on the racing apron serving up great local bites for purchase.

This is one of the most incredible events of the year, so don't miss it! All the details can be found by clicking HERE and I've including a gallery below from last year's event!
