It was the first time they put on this event and I would say it was a great success. They had adequate facilities on site like port-a-potties and food vendors. Where they came up short with was organization. When the dogs finally went on parade it was mob rather than a parade. In the future I think they should release the dogs in groups to lengthen the parade and allow us to see more dogs.
The kids really enjoyed this. The weather was ok and seeing all types of dogs was fun. Alyce got to make a Mardi Gras mask and Luke listened to some music.
It was a short, didn't cost us anything, and we had fun. All the makings of good time.
