Kicking off this year’s Mardi Gras event on March 9 at 5 p.m. will be the Mardi Paw Parade, a full pageantry dog costume contest sponsored by Friends of the Park. The paw-rade will be led by Grand Marshall, Samson, followed by the newly crowned furry four-legged King Flash and Queen Bella of the Muttley Krewe of Hounds!
All dogs and crew are encouraged to dress up in true Mardi Gras fashion. The pet-ticipants ride in anything from decorated strollers to elaborately created wagons and carts and he pet’s entourage (aka mom, dad, kids, and friends) dress in theme with the float.
Registration and check in begins at 4:00 p.m. Prizes will be awarded in several catagories. Cost is $5 per pooch and proceeds will benefit Pawmosa Dog Park and other dog-related enhancements in Casselberry parks.
All proceeds go towards Friends of the Park, which we be used to add features/cleanup/improve Pawmosa Dog Park specifically.
