Super Hero Critters

Deer Park Kiwanis Club’s 3rd annual Pet Parade is open to all persons 18 years or younger, along with their feathered, finned, or four-legged friends.  Even if you don’t have a pet, you’re still welcome to walk or ride a bike along the route. Parents are encouraged to walk with their kids that are 7 years or younger.

The theme was submitted by 8 year old Emma.  Her winning idea was “Super Heroes.” Keeping this theme in mind, you and your pet up can dress up.  Also decorate your bicycle, scooter, or wagon. Participants should bring water for their pets before and after the parade, and pick up whatever their animals leave behind.

Prizes will be awarded in five categories.

  • Large Dogs
  • Small Dogs
  • Miscellaneous Pets
    • Horses, Cows, Pigs, Gerbils, Snakes, etc.
  • Wheeled Only

There will be additional prizes for:

  • Most Creative
  • Most Colorful Pet and Owner
  • Best Meets the Theme

Saturday, June 22nd is the day of the parade. Line up starts at 9:30am, at Arcadia Elementary School. The parade begins at 10:30am, with the end of the route at Swinyard Park.

Registration is open; forms can be picked up from the Deer Park Library, or at dpgazette.com/petparade.  Please register by June 14th; there is no fee.
