Happy Tails Pet Parade and Contest Information: ($10.00 Participation Fee)

Ticket sales will end May 11 at 5:00 pm.
Bring your Favorite Furry Friend to Kimmswick and let them “Strut their Stuff”!  The Participation fee allows your pet to participate in the parade through town and compete for awards and prizes. Merchants will be selecting their favorite pets as they strut their stuff.

After the parade the fun continues with contests such as Best Dressed Dog, Best Dressed Cat, Best Pet Trick, Largest and Smallest Dog.
We are limiting the number of Happy Tails Contestants, so we encourage you to register in advance.

Advance Registration is also available at our Kimmswick Visitor Center 314 Market Street, 636.464.6464 (cash or check only).

A portion of the proceeds of all the registration fees will go to support the participating rescue organizations. Event will occur rain or shine, no refunds as this is a fundraiser for various animal rescue organizations.
