Vet checks and Opening Ceremonies: there will be lots of dogs to pet

The vet checks take place the day before the race start, and it is your opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with the mushers and, most importantly, their dogs.

More text about how cool vet checks are. You can go to the opening ceremonies on that day too. Those are pretty cool to watch.
