Beggin’ Pet Parade

Sun., Feb. 24, 1 p.m.
,

The costume traditions of Mardi Gras are not just for humans, and the Beggin' Pet Parade is the proof. Beloved dogs who are comfortable wearing clothes, costumes or exotic outfits gather with their people at South 12th Street and Allen Avenue (www.stlmardigras.org/events/beggin-pet-parade) for the 1 p.m. parade of pooches on Sunday, February 24. It's free to watch, and if you believe your dog has the charisma and "wow" factor to be named one of the best-dressed pets on parade, it's only $10 to register a single canine; the judges will select the most gloriously attired dogs for the Court of the Mystical Krewe of Barkus at the Coronation Pageant, where the King and Queen of Barkus will be anointed with their crowns. Registration fees help the Open Door Animal Sanctuary. And if you have a need for speed, don't forget the Wiener Dog Derby, which always follows the parade and showcases the fastest dachshunds in the metro area competing for glory. Humans can flex their competitive muscles in the derby-hat contest, which challenges you to flaunt your best example of haberdasher's art. free for spectators
