Last year we held the Rochester Dachshund Parade in June, but a summer month was too hot even for hot dogs! To beat the heat we treated all our dachsies to a splash in a kiddie pool. If you missed seeing that, just check out the 2008 Parade Video below.
Now, by popular demand, the 8th Annual Rochester Dachshund Parade has moved back to the spring; Saturday, May 9, 2009, to be exact. Once again we’ll meet and greet at Washington Square Park across from GEVA Theater beginning at 10 AM.
This year's parade will be emceed by Jane Fairchild and sponsored by Monroe Veterinary Associates. The "official" parade hot dog vendor, Dave's Sidewalk Cafe‚ will return along with additional vendors offering handcrafted dog-themed items. New this year are Parade T-Shirts that will be available for a $15 donation (cash only).
