Pets on Parade

Council’s Rangers annually host Pets on Parade to promote responsible pet ownership to the local community. Pets on Parade in 2018 will take place from 9:00am on Sunday 27 May.

Council's focus for Pets on Parade in 2018 is pet registration. Click here to find out more about pet registration.

Registration and Parade Route

Assembly of the parade will be at 8:45am on Leichhardt Terrace, with the parade commencing at 9:00am. Once again there are two commencement points based on how far your pet wants to walk. Larger pets commence opposite the Todd Tavern and participants with smaller pets will assemble at the water tank opposite the YHA.

The parade will proceed down the Leichhardt Terrace riverside walkway to Gregory Terrace, turning left onto Todd Street concluding at the Civic Centre Lawns. And then the fun begins!!

You can wander around stalls, watch some balloon twisting, purchase breakfast from the BBQ, buy a coffee or just sit down and watch the fun.

Competitions and Prizes

The costume competition theme in 2018 is Colour & Cheer! Dress yourself and your pets in the most vibrant costume you can come up with to win prizes for best dressed!

More to be announced closer to the date!
