There's no better place to be on a Sunday in September afternoon to be than at Maine Wienerfest.

The 18th Annual Maine Wienerfest help last Sunday in Belfast brought dog lovers from all over New England and beyond to celebrate all things Doxie. The event was organized by the PAWS Animal Adoption Center and brought together nearly 1200 people and their pets. This years event featured various retail vendors, the dachshund parade, costume contest, the doxie derby and of course, plenty of wiener dogs.
