PAWS Pet Parade - March 28 - Cancelled

The 2020 PAWS Pet Parade on Saturday, March 28 has been cancelled.

It will be the 15th annual celebration of the canines in Oriental – where it is always the Year of the Dog. 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. Canine costumes encouraged. A new category has been added this year: the Junior Award highlights children who participate in the parade.

Hot dogs for sale. The parade raises funds for the Pamlico Animal Welfare Society and its spay/neuter program, pet food distribution and “New Leash on Life” program. Have a look at previous pet parades:
