Before the party animals turn out for the New Year’s eve celebration in Key West, the real animals took to the streets and celebrated in style.
Many of the 300 dogs participating in the Key West Dachshunds Walk were wearing quirky costumes.
Dogs dressed as Santa and different super heroes were just some of the pooches who took part in the parade.
The parade is the family-friendly prelude to Key West’s night-time celebration.
Tens of thousands of people were expected to gather for a variety of New Year’s eve events in Key West including a pirate “wench” descending from atop a tall ship’s mast.
