KANSAS CITY — A Kansas City promoter is hoping to break a Guinness world record by parading at least 700 costumed dogs, mostly Chihuahuas, down a city street on Cinco de Mayo.
Promoter Mark Valentine said the parade will introduce Chihuahuas to their cultural heritage while helping The Pet Connection, a no-kill shelter in Mission, Kan.
Parade participants will pay a $5 entry fee to benefit the shelter.
Valentine said the world record for most costumed dogs doesn't specify a breed, and that he thinks there will be more than enough entries to break it.
The parade starts at 11 a.m. May 5 in Kansas City's Crossroads Art District. All canine entrants must be leashed and in costume. Registrations will be accepted onsite.
