WASHINGTON, DC. - On Sunday, Tyson's Biergarten played host to an event called Corgtoberfest—yes, that’s a combination of “corgi” and “Oktoberfest”—and both the big-eared dogs and steins of German beer were present in large numbers. This was the fourth edition of “Derpin’ in DC,” the largest annual corgi meet-up in the area. It did not disappoint.

The day began with a Halloween costume contest for the corgis—favorites included lobster, superman, and yellow submarine get-ups—followed by the main event, the corgi races. Corgis young and old charged across the several-yard stretch, kicking up dust in their paths and impressing onlookers with their speed and determination. First place went to a five-year-old purebred named Butters, belonging to Edda Wong from Ashburn.
