Does your pup love to pawty?

You can get your pooch into the Carnival spirit in the Krewe of Barkloxi’s Bow Wow Paw-rade at noon Feb. 4 at the Biloxi Town Green. The parade, in its second year, is presented by the Biloxi Bay Area Chamber of Commerce, Biloxi Main Street, the Humane Society of South Mississippi and The Dawg House.

Parade registration and check-in will begin at noon, and the parade will follow. The parade will take place downtown Biloxi and will be led by the 2018 Krewe of Barkloxi King and Queen. Dogs dressed for Mardi Gras success will be judged in categories of most creative costume, cuteness, happiest dog and who wears it best. Pet parents are encouraged to dress in costumes similar to those their fur babies are sporting.

Registration: $10 pre-registration donation per pet. Registration forms and checks can be mailed to The Humane Society of South Mississippi, 2615 25th Ave., Gulfport, MS 39501 or emailed to katie@hssm.org and purchased via hssm.org/events/krewe-of-barkloxi-2nd-annual-bow-wow-pawrade/. The registration donation on-site per pet is $15.

Animals must be current on all vaccinations; no aggressive animals or females in season will be allowed, and all animals must be on a leash (no retractable leashes) and in control by their owners at all times. Pet owners must pick up after their pets, and no motorized floats will be allowed (decorated wagons, strollers and carts are acceptable).
