14TH ANNUAL KREWE OF PAWS MARDI GRAS PET PARADE - February 15, 2020

The Krewe of PAWS Mardi Gras Pet Parade will roll through downtown West Monroe, LA (Antique Alley) on 2/15/20. Our theme this year is "The Magic of Furry Tales...and feathers & scales".

This annual parade fundraiser is where a large portion of our funding comes from that allows us to rescue and spay/neuter so many pets each year! We hope you'll join the fun and help us raise lots of funds!

ONLINE PRE-REGISTRATION FOR THE PARADE:



Registration fees are $25 for your first pet and $5 for each addt'l pet. Your registration includes 1 flashing LED purple paw print on a string of Mardi Gras beads (it's super cute!). (If you wait until parade day to register, fees will then be $25 for your first pet and $10 for each addt'l pet and the paw print Mardi Gras bead is NOT included). Use options below to register!

PARADE DAY SCHEDULE:

11:00 - Parade registration, children's games & merchandise sales begin

Please keep in mind that once the parade starts at 1:00, you will still be standing in line for a bit if you are farther back in line because it takes a while for the parade to get going once people start walking. So if you get in line too much before 1:00, you may have a lot of time standing around in line.

PARADE ROUTE:

Parade will begin in the 100 block of Commerce Street and proceed to the Pine Street intersection. Parade will turn left onto Pine Street. Parade will turn left onto Trenton Street. Parade will turn left onto Wood Street and then left back onto Commerce Street. You can see a map of the parade route HERE
