2024 PAWS Pet Parade - March 30

The 2024 PAWS Pet Parade is scheduled for Saturday, March 30

It is the 17th annual celebration of the canines in Oriental. The parade sets out on the streets near Lou Mac Park at 11a. Dogs and their humans can register from 10-11a that morning at the Lou Mac Park staging area.

The entry fee is $5 per dog. All vaccinations must be up to date and PAWS asks that participants and spectators leash their dogs. Awards presented in numerous categories. Creative canine costumes are optional but highly encouraged. Prizes awarded in many categories, including bribing a judge to raise the most amount of money.

While waiting for the judges’ votes to be tallied, enjoy an Easter Egg Hunt – with eggs full of dog treats. Eggs are hidden along the parade route and in Lou Mac Park after the parade.

The PAWS hot dog cart will have refreshments available for purchase. Proceeds from the parade and hot dog cart are used to assist the animals of Pamlico County.
