COSTUME CONTEST CATEGORIES
Best in Theme (Male/Female)
Best Dressed Duo (Pet/Owner Look Alike)
Most Creative Float
Pack Pick (Best Coordination of Dog, Float, Walkers)
Parade participants (dogs and their handlers) should dress in costume in keeping with this year's theme "A Fairy Tail by Krewe Du Pooch!" Be creative, as there is a lot of material to choose from (classic fairy tales, Disney movies, princes and princesses, etc.). Only non-motorized floats will be permitted (shopping carts, wagons, strollers, etc.).
Please note that there will NOT be a separate costume contest this year, as all contestants will be judged during the parade. Our panel of celebrity judges will review all contestants from a viewing stand along the parade route. Winners will be announced from the music stage at the end of the event. Each will receive a pet-related gift basket and recognition our website and social media.
