13TH ANNUAL KREWE OF PAWS MARDI GRAS PET PARADE - February 16, 2019

The Krewe of PAWS Mardi Gras Pet Parade will roll through downtown West Monroe, LA (Antique Alley) on 2/16/19. Our theme this year is "Under The Big Top".

This annual parade fundraiser is where a large portion of our funding comes from that allows us to rescue and spay/neuter so many pets each year! You can help us raise the MOST money yet with this year's parade! How?

1) Register your pet(s) and participate in the parade!
2) Bring the kids out and play some of the games before the parade (go fish, ring toss, bean bag toss, etc). Game tickets will be sold near where the games are set up.
3) Stop by our merchandise tent and purchase some beads to throw or some PAWS gear (parade t-shirt...while supplies last, hoodies, hats, t-shirts and more)
4) Drop a donation in one of the donation jars around our parade staging area
5) Can't make it to the parade? You can still help :) Make a donation here and include a note that it's for the parade fundraiser! DONATE HERE

PARADE DAY SCHEDULE:

11:00 - Parade registration, children's games & face painting begin
12:00 - Contest judging begins (Winners will be announced immediately following the contests)
1:00 - Parade line up

Please keep in mind that once the parade starts at 1:30, you will still be standing in line for a bit if you are farther back in line because it takes a while for the parade to get going once people start walking. So if you get in line too much before 1:00, you may have a lot of time standing around in line.

Parade will begin in the 100 block of Commerce Street and proceed to the Pine Street intersection. Parade will turn left onto Pine Street. Parade will turn left onto Trenton Street. Parade will turn left onto Wood Street and then left back onto Commerce Street. You can see a map of the parade route HERE

PARADE RULES:

1. Animals must be current on vaccinations
2. No aggressive animals or females that are in season
3. We welcome all pets, however, we do not allow horses, ponies or livestock to be entered into the parade as they may scare the dogs.
4. Animals must be on a NON-retractable leash (or in a carrier) and in control by their owner at ALL times. Retractable leashes are NOT allowed.
5. Pet owners MUST pooper scoop after their dogs.
6. NO motorized floats allowed. Floats are welcome and encouraged. Floats can be created using wagons, carts, strollers, anything with wheels that does not have a motor. NO bicycles or rollerblades as these can scare the animals.
7. NO candy, small trinkets or dog treats are allowed to be thrown as they can be a safety/choking hazard to pets. Please ONLY throw beads, cups or larger non-edible items! From past parade participants, we have heard that you will want to bring a minimum of 4 dozen beads or else you will run out before the end of the parade.
