PETS ON THIRD - JANUARY 19, 2014

Begin by browsing an array of pet specialty vendors.  You're more than likely to find just the right collar, scarf or leash for the pet you adore.  Local veterinarians as well as professional trainers and pet boarders will also be on hand to offer advice and inform you of their services.  If a portrait of your favorite pet is on your wish list, speak to one of the pet artists that will be on hand.

Then follow Grand Marshall Mayor John Sorey in the parade where people and their pets of every persuasion strut their stuff dressing in costume reflecting this year's theme of 'All Star Pets: Show Your Team Spirit'.  Judges will present awards for the most original costume; pet and owner look-alike; and best theme costume.
