Wiener Fest kicked off Sunday with a wiener dog costume contest at 10 a.m. followed by a variety of activities, with the popular Wiener Dog Races beginning at noon. There were Wanna Be Wiener Dog races for breeds other than Dachshund, special races for Senior Wiener Dogs and Special Olympics for dogs with disabilities. Aggieland Humane Society holds Wiener Fest each year to raise money for homeless pets.
