And they’re off!

Short-legged pooches will try to best each other during races at Canterbury Park. While watching the stubby little dogs waddle down the track, taste a variety of sweets from Twin Cities cookie and cupcake vendors. To sweeten the deal, Canterbury has added a kiddie carnival with fun for the whole family. 12:45-6 p.m. Sat. $9, 17 and under free. 1100 Canterbury Rd., Shakopee. 952-445-7223. canterburypark.com.
