Internet sensations Rocco, Rhapsody and Indie will welcome 1000 fellow chihuahuas to the biggest ever canine christmas party.
Pet owners from all over the UK and abroad are bringing their pampered pooches to act as Santa’s little helpers on Sunday 3 December at Royal Windsor Racecourse.
Fest of Chihuahuas, thrown by dog boutique and event organizers Haus of Chihuahuas, will combine canine fun and festive family cheer. Among the many attractions will be Santa Paws Grotto – hashtag CHI’elfie!, a huge Christmas hits and carol singalong session with local singer Tiger Lilly, a festive Christmas market selling trinkets and treasures for humans and their pets, indulgent hot food and drink, a doggy wedding shack for pets to exchange bow wow vows with their loved one and a pet photo booths for a once in a lifetime Christmas pawtraits.
In between shopping, singing and a festive toast, visitors will be able to watch special chihuahuas Christmas themed performances with the U.K’s top chihuahua agility dog and Crufts favourite Lucky the Chihuahua.
Chihuahuas are invited to enter Chi Idol, the canine equivalent to X Factor with categories such as Smallest Dog, Biggest Attitude, Matching Pairs – Christmas jumper edition, Dapper Dog and the Chihuahua Rescue UK sponsored Rescue Reward. The ultimate champion Chihuahuas will be crowned King and Queen of the festival in the Royal Windsor Racecourse Winners enclosure.
Founder Rachel Louise Monk says: ‘It’s amazing that the event has grown to the size it is now, it all started as a bit of a barking idea (excuse the pun!) but quickly became a reality when we had over 1000 Chihuahuas attending our summer event! I’m even more excited about this festive celebration of Chihuahuas, combining canine and Christmas cheer will create an amazing atmosphere for everyone who attends – just what is needed to bring in the Christmas season. Raising awareness for dogs in rescue is something really close to my heart too, especially around this time of year which is when backyard breeders are out in force’.
The event is being held in aid of Chihuahua Rescue UK and aims to raise money and awareness.
Fest of Chihuahuas – Christmas Spectacular is open to chihuahua owners and also anyone who admires them. Lovers are welcome to spectate and have unlimited cuddles with the cutest dogs in the world!
Tickets available on Windsor Racecourse website. Book in advance to avoid disappointment. Event runs 11.30-5PM Sunday 3rd December.
