From the Rochester Dachshund Parade website:

"Can you believe it -- the Rochester Dachshund Parade turns 13 this year. You could even say, 'We're not a kid anymore!' But all the kids are invited along with the moms and dads and grandparents to enjoy the magnificent sight of wiener dogs on parade in the heart of the city. It's been a long, cold, snowy winter, so come out and enjoy one of Rochester's rites of spring and the Parade's lucky 13th!"

Mission of the Dachshund Parade Committee: "The Dachshund Parade Committee is a group of dachshund owners in the Rochester area who are committed to promoting responsible pet ownership. While the primary function is to stage an annual world-class gathering of dachshunds and their owners in downtown Rochester, members are encouraged to work year-round to:

Provide education to dachshund owners about health issues. Support well managed breed rescue efforts. Give financial support to community organizations dedicated to relief of animal suffering. Celebrate the joy of the breed."
