Jo's  18th Annual Easter Pet Parade & Costume Contest

It's that time of year again!  Come out and celebrate with us and help us raise some money for Austin Pets Alive!  We'll have lots of FREE activities for the whole family including a bouncy house, local vendors, the Easter Bunny, face painters, treats and of course, Pets in Costumes!  There will also be live music from the Andrew Nafziger Trio and the parade will be led by the Dead Music Capital Band!  The Parade starts at noon, so grab a spot along South Congress to watch or just wait for the party to come to you in the Jo's Parking Lot.  Want to participate in the contest this year?  See registration info below.

There are no rules, dress your pet up in something cool. The funkier the better! The parade begins at noon on April 15 at Hudson’s Meat Market (1800 S. Congress). We will march down South Congress to the Jo’s parking lot for a promenade in front of the judges and then each contestant has a chance to show off individually. Prizes include a night at the Hotel San Jose, Jo’s gift certificates, and cool doggie stuff.

The costume contest is limited to 30 participants, so register early!

Register by clicking on the link below by Tuesday, April 11.  Cost is $20.

All proceeds benefit Austin Pets Alive!
