Missouri event aims at breaking costumed dog record

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Published: April 18, 2012
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. on May 5. All canine entrants must be leashed and in costume. Registrations will be accepted onsite.
