Dachtoberfest goes out with a dash

Posted

Dachshund lovers bid a fun-filled farewell to a beloved tradition at the 10 and final Colorado Dachtoberfest at Cornerstone Park in Littleton on Sept. 30.

The annual event, known for its “Doxie Dash” races, wrapped up for good this year after organizer Mary Alice Allery decided to go out on a high note.

“We started this off as a fundraiser,” Allery said. “It developed into a festival, and continued to grow. When you grow, you need time money and people. We're at the max of what we can do.”

The event raised about $6,000 a year to help cover vet costs for a variety of Front Range dog rescues.
