Pamplona can have its Running of the Bulls – give us 100 tiny, bug-eyed, apple-headed dogs running down a racetrack relay-style any day. The event, sponsored by Cocina 214, allows anyone to register their Chihuahua to run the race, and the proceeds benefit Winter Park Lost Pets and A Cause 4 Paws Rescue. Registration begins at 10 a.m., and Chihuahua racing begins promptly at 11. When your dog is done with his laps, you can take him to the Chihuahua photo booth, bring him to the bar to enjoy a Tito’s Lone Star Lemonade, margarita or a Corona (for you, not the dog), or let him get to know his fellow Chihuahuas trackside. Don’t have a chi? Don’t feel like you can’t attend – watching the bobbleheads run is free and perhaps the best Sunday Funday entertainment you’re likely to find north of the border today.

10 a.m. Sunday, May 3 | Cocina 214, 151 E. Welbourne Ave., Winter Park | 407-790-7997 | cocina214.com/events | $20 to race your chihuahua, free to watch
