🌧️ Announcement: 85th Annual Pet Parade Cancellation Tomorrow ☔️

It is with great disappointment that we must inform you of the cancellation of the much-anticipated 85th Annual Pet Parade along with the 89th Annual Laurel Festival Parade, scheduled for tomorrow, due to inclement weather. The rain forecast for the day poses safety concerns for our beloved pets and their human companions.

We understand the excitement and anticipation surrounding this long-standing tradition, and we share in your disappointment. Unfortunately,  we do not have a make-up date for the Pet Parade. However, the planning committee is exploring the possibility of participating in the upcoming Memorial Day Parade as a way to celebrate our furry friends and their contributions.

We will keep you informed about any updates regarding the Memorial Day Parade participation as soon as we receive confirmation. We genuinely appreciate your understanding and flexibility during this unpredictable situation.

*Prizes will be awarded either at the Memorial Day Parade or delivered to the schools.*

While we can't control the weather, we can still celebrate our pets' unconditional love and companionship. Take this rainy day as an opportunity to create precious memories with your furry companions at home. Enjoy cozy snuggles, play their favorite games indoors, or even organize a small pet gathering with your friends and neighbors.

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude for your ongoing support and enthusiasm for the 85th Annual Pet Parade. Your participation and love for our furry friends are what make this event so special.
