Redwood City's 3rd Annual Pet Parade!

Redwood City, CA - March 16, 2004 - The Redwood City Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department and the Redwood City Parks and Recreation Commission present the Third Annual "Pet Parade!" This event is fast becoming a tradition in Redwood City , and is great fun for the entire family. It takes place on Saturday, April 3, 2004 behind the Community Activities Building located in Red Morton Park at 1400 Roosevelt Avenue in Redwood City , starting at 11:30 am .

The annual Pet Parade is renowned as "the happiest event of the year," judging from the huge crowds, the smiles on people's faces, and the many cheerful critters! Costumes are encouraged for pets, and for pet companions. The last two Pet Parades featured dogs, cats, lizards, birds, and even a chicken - and this year is sure to be even more exciting. There will be awards for the contest winners in several categories: best pet costume, best pet/companion costume, best pet and owner look-alike, most unusual pet, and best pet trick. On hand will be our own emcees to play music and keep the Pet Parade rolling. There will be vendor booths with goodies to purchase, along with food booths for the hungry critters in the crowd. There will be a raffle with lots of fun prizes for the lucky winners. "Third Annual Pet Parade" T-shirts will also be available, and the event will feature animals for adoption as well as animal rescue groups.

The community is invited to bring their pet or special stuffed animal. Sign up in advance by filling out an entry form at any Parks and Recreation location, or use the online form.
