Pets on Parade

Council’s Rangers annually host the Pets on Parade event to promote responsible pet ownership to the local community.

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

There are great prizes for the BEST DRESSED HUMAN and BEST DRESSED PET, as well as some great giveaways throughout the day.

This year’s dress up theme is your favourite ANIMATED character - and don’t forget to dress your PET too!

'Toss the brain into the cat trap' is back again! For $1.00 a brain, you can try your luck at getting the brain into the trap to win a great prize.
