The Parade of Paws is going virtual this year!

Unfortunately, because of the virus, downtown events through the end of the year have been canceled. But we can’t give up after 21 years of our dog parade, with dogs and their owners bringing costumes and cheer to their admiring public.

So, dust off the top hats, ruffles and props if you have them, and we’ll do it virtually! Pictures are welcome but taking a video of you and your animals “parading” from left to right would be even better. We’ll put them all together to make our parade come to life.

Get creative with your backgrounds and themes — this is the year to go as big as you want since you don’t need to pull it down Centre Street. You can get the whole family, even your fish, involved! If we get enough participants, we will even do prizes.

Please submit your pictures or video via email to [email protected] by Wednesday, Dec. 9 so that our Parade Grand Marshal can edit everyone together, and we will “walk” on Saturday, Dec. 12 as planned. Let’s make it another parade to remember!
