The great Milwaukee summer is HERE! Don't miss all of our great coverage on local festivals and happenings. Click here for your full summer line-up! 

Your guide to having a great summer is brought to you by Potawatomi Hotel & Casino and Peoples State Bank.

Those of us with Chihuahua family members already know that we have the most beautiful pup in the land. However, if you wanna take it a step further and enter your sweet guy or gal in a contest to publicly determine it, we have you covered.

The Chihuahua Beauty Contest will take place during Taco Fest on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 1:30 p.m. at the Henry Maier Festival Park.

Chihuahuas (mixed breeds are completely welcome!) will be scored for their outfit / costume, “trick” (we use this term lightly; perhaps their trick is simply being cute and cuddly) and overall adorableness.

First Prize is a $150 gift card from Fromm Family Pet Food; Second Place is a $100 gift card and Third Place is a $50 gift card.

To sign up your Chi for the contest, go here. We will pick the first eight to register and inform the partipants via email soon! Proof of updated rabbis shots is required.

I will emcee the event with my Chihuahua-mix rescue, Frankie, and we can’t wait to see all the beauties!


Mark you calendars for Fromm Petfest on Saturday, Sept. 24th. Find all the info here.
