You've probably heard of dog and cat shows, but what about a rabbit show? That's what's happening this weekend at Century II in downtown Wichita.
Every bunny who's any bunny is there. A hare more than 22,000 of the cuddly creatures have arrived for the American Rabbit Breeders Association Convention.
Three thousand rabbit enthusiasts from across the nation and around the world are showing off their bunnies. It means millions in tourism dollars for Wichita.
"This is a two-and-a-half-year project to get this all lined up and planned," convention chairman Tom Little of Andover says. "There's a lot involved."
Kathleen Phillips arrived from Salinas, California. She raises the smallest breed of rabbits in the world.
"You're excited," Phillips says. "You've been raising these rabbits, and you want to get your little baby bunnies up on the table and show off what you've been working on for a year."
This the second time Wichita has hosted the annual convention. The event runs until Wednesday.
