When: Saturday, March 5th at 11am

If you’ve been begging to let the good times roll, you’re not alone! We missed seeing all the pets strut their stuff last year and are thrilled to announce the date and location of the 15th Annual Mardi Growl pet parade and festival, presented by Merchants of Beer.

The pet parade steps off at 11 a.m. in the Old City and travels up Jackson Avenue to the new festival location at World’s Fair Park. After the parade, stick around for the party! While you wait to see who takes home 1st place in each of the seven parade contest categories, enjoy live music, grab a bite to eat or a drink in the food park, participate in games and activities for the whole family, and visit with over 100 pet-friendly vendors.
