Edgewater’s Edgefest will be holding its 2nd annual Pet Parade on Saturday, August 4 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
This event will take place on the south stage at Ardmore and Broadway.
The cost to register is $10 a pet for the parade. Out of the ten, five of which will go to Care for Real.
Participants and their furry friends can win awards such as best costume, best trick, smallest or biggest pet and/or the pet and owner look-alike contest.
Participants can register online at www.edgewater.org by August 3, or in person on August 4.
Katrina Balog, executive director of Edgewater Chamber of Commerce, said there are no restrictions as to how many pets can be entered by a participant and organizers are expecting about 100 attendees this year.
“[There are] no exclusion for pets. Owners know their pets best. They should only bring their pet if they will do ok in a crowd,” Balog said. “We will have a band leading the parade, so there will be some noise as well.”
She added, “Care for Real’s board chair will be a judge for the contests after the parade.”
