Registration Open For K9 Keg Pull (2018-12-10 16:00:13)

Registration is now open for the fourth annual K9 Keg Pull at the Blowing Rock American Legion Building.

The Mountain Times reports the Keg Pull will be a part of Blowing Rock’s Winterfest this year, on Saturday, January 26th, with races starting at 1 in the afternoon.

According to the report, half of the proceeds from the event benefit the nonprofit PARTNERS! Canines, a High Country-based animal rescue organization.

At the event, dogs are matched, based on their weight, with empty beer kegs or cans that are mounted on sleds and snowboards.

The dogs will pull the kegs and cans in races down a 100-foot course.

Prizes will be awarded for overall fastest, overall slowest and oldest and youngest dog.

Pre-registration and day of registration is $15.
