Extremely kid and adult friendly. Over 200 dachshunds were in attendance for the walk last year - a record number! Just as many if not more are expected this year. Fleming Street will truly be a "wiener wonderland" - a short walk for short legged dogs. In past years walk watchers have been amazed and delighted by the variety of dachshunds and their outlandish costumes.
