There are plenty of events taking place this weekend for the Kenora Winter Carnival. One of the events happening Saturday is Mushin’ for Mutts, a skijoring race through the Nordic trails at Mount Evergreen.

Organizer Laura Loohuizen says she’s been overwhelmed by the interest.

“So far registration has exceeded expectations. I’m happy to say I have 22 teams with six local teams and the rest making their way from Winnipeg to enjoy our local trails,” she said.

Mushin’ for Mutts is a skijoring race being held this year at Mount Evergreen on the Nordic ski trails. Anyone can enter their own dog or borrow a pooch from It’s a Dog’s Life. There will even be a special cup for dogs from the fostering organization. Even if you don’t want to enter, Loohuizen encourages everyone to come out. – See more at:
