SLIDESHOW: Oktoberfest starts with The March of Dachshunds

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

DULUTH, MN– Before all the fun-filled Oktoberfest shenanigans started at Bayfront, a very festive group of dachshunds paraded through Canal Park.

The March Of The Dachshunds featured about a dozen weiner dogs strutting from Canal Park to Bayfront Park.

The owner of the previous king of the parade, Ashley Boller, said she is hoping to take home another medal this year.

“Jimmy is the reigning king of the parade from two years ago the last Oktober fest. He won the king with his sister for best costume. So he donned the same costume this year. Reggie is new to the family, so he has the new version of the costume. But we’re hoping to take home another medal this year,” said Boller.

If you missed out on the parade Friday, you can still see the dachshund derby Sunday afternoon when the weiner dogs put their need for speed to the test.
