Texas Town Preps ‘Major’ Event Featuring Chihuahua Race

Still not sure what to do this weekend? Historic Seguin, Texas will be holding its Chihuahua race event, an annual extravaganza pitting tiny, hairless dogs  against each other for some unknown reason.

The event, organized by the Seguin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (yes, there is a  Seguin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce) includes a day of “washers, music and racing” and will be held on June 23 in Central Park (yes, they do have their own Central Park.)

    Love this. Can’t wait to see the footage. But why the snark on Seguin? Did you mean to strike out “Historic” from the town’s designation? You do know Seguin is named after Juan Nepomuceno Seguín, one of the few Latino historical figure that’s been commemorated in Texas history and had a town named after him. Most historians have written of his honorable character but he was scrubbed by most Anglo Texas history books until he was recovered in the second half of the 20th century…by Latino historians.

  2. Thank you, Dan, for your comment, and yes, point taken on the Seguin snark. To be honest, I’ve no idea where that came from, so thanks -seriously- for the explanation.. .I just thought it was a funky little place nobody knew anything about, but I guess I was wrong 😦
