Hundreds packed Winter Park’s East Welbourne Avenue on Cinco de Mayo for the beloved Running of the Chihuahuas event.
Winter Park’s East Welbourne Avenue was packed with people and pups on Sunday, May 5, for Cocina 214’s seventh annual Running of the Chihuahuas. Many pups were sporting sombreros and colorful outfits for the occasion, and more than 100 dogs competed in the races. At the end of the day, 5-year-old Beans — owned by Winter Park resident Kevin Favis — ousted last year’s winner, Zeus, for the crown. All proceeds from the event went to the Winter Park Lost Pets and the Poodle and Pooch Rescue of Florida organizations.
