DENVER --- The dog days of summer may be over but it's time to welcome the dog days of fall.

At Washington Park in Denver on Saturday, dozens of dachshunds showed up in their Halloween best.

Not only is it an adorable event, the organizer says it gives dog owners a chance to learn more about their pets.

People often find new resources when it comes to things like animal training or pet nutrition.

Best couple, cutest and funniest dogs were the other categories.

And the winning weenies got fancy play toys.

A group called "Wash Park Weenies" organized the event that has been going on about seven years now and say this year was the biggest turn out to date.
