Cool Hunting Video Presents: The Dachshund Spring Fiesta 2007

Going on its third decade, the annual Dachshund Spring Fiesta is a celebratory gathering of the breed and those who love them

by Cool Hunting Video in Culture on 27 April 2007

In this video we visit the 19th annual Dachshund Spring Fiesta in NYC's Washington Square Park. Put on by the Dachshund Friendship Club, the event is one of two get-togethers they hold each year and draws hundreds of Dachsies and their owners. The only official activity is the singing of the Dachshund Song, composed by Murray Weinstock (who also made a CD of "dog tunes" called Tales of the City) and Paul de Vries. With Weinstock on accordion and de Vries' custom organ (built in honor of his now deceased Dachshund), the polka song is a befitting tribute to the hot dog.
