This event is held annually at the end of May. For 5 years in succession hundreds of dachshund owners have come to St. Petersburg to dress up their dogs and march in the parade.

The dachshund parade is not a traditional dog show; it is a large celebration with many participants each year showing off the maddest, funniest, and most bizarre costumes ever put on a dog.
