Kansas City, Mo. A Kansas City promoter hopes to break a world record by parading at least 700 costumed dogs, mostly Chihuahuas, down a city street on Cinco de Mayo.
Promoter Mark Valentine says the parade will introduce Chihuahuas to their cultural heritage while helping a no-kill shelter.
Parade participants will pay a $5 entry fee to benefit the shelter, called The Pet Connection.
Valentine says the Guinness world record for most costumed dogs doesn’t specify a breed. He expects there will be more than enough entries to break it.
The parade starts at 11 a.m. May 5 in the Crossroads district of Kansas City. All canine entrants must be leashed and in costume. Registrations will be accepted onsite.
