Key West's Dressed-Up Dachshunds On Parade (WATCH)

Even the dogs in Key West are in drag for New Year's Eve. Nearly 250 canines paraded through the city's Old Town for the annual Key West Dachshund Walk this past weekend.

Some were dressed as cheerleaders -- Green Bay Packers' and not Fins' -- while others donned feather boas, top hats, and the occasional lederhosen.

There was even a "newshound" wearing a functional video camera. A crowd favorite was the dachshund dressed as an iguana. And as this was Key West, there was at least one doggy pirate in the mix.

Local dive bar, the Green Parrot, even lifted their dog ban for the festivities, which preceded the city's Drag Drop later that night.
