Due to construction at Buda City Park, the Buda Lions Club has moved the Annual Wiener Dog races to Buck’s Backyard this year. The City looks forward to partnering with the Buda Lions Club in the future for this popular event. The Wiener Dog Races will return to a new and improved City Park in 2020.
"The Buda Lions Club appreciates all of the support that the City of Buda has provided over the years for our annual Country Fair and Wiener Dog Races. Sadly, we are unable to have our 22nd Annual event at the City Park this year due to construction activities, but we want to invite all of our regular guests and new guests to our 2019 location near Buck's Backyard on April 27th and 28th,” said Buda Lions Club President Micheal Criner. “The City of Buda has been a long-time ally in promoting our event, and we appreciate their effort to publicize this event as a service to the community. We look forward to having the Wiener Dog Races at the new City Park in 2020, bringing in even more people for a weekend of fun and excitement."

In December the Buda City Council approved a contract with The Barr Company for City Park Renovations. Construction on City Park will begin this month. The improvements include a new amphitheater, two new playground areas, a splash pad, new restrooms, and a games and grilling area. This is all part of the Proposition 5 Park and Trail Improvements that were approved in November 2014. Project completion is anticipated by January 2020.
When complete, City Park will become a destination park for the region. It will be capable of hosting large concerts and festivals to serve Buda and the broader region. For more information on the project visit www.ci.buda.tx.us.
