The Gaslamp Pet Parade steps off promptly at 3:00PM from MLK Promenade Park, proudly led by the official Grand Marshals, Ozzie and Ferra the Chihuahuas (Handler: Corey Dobbs). The parade route continues up 4th Ave to E Street and then down 5th Ave ending under the iconic Gaslamp Quarter Archway. Festively-attired critters compete for bragging rights and prizes in various contest categories. The tinseled procession then returns to MLK Promenade Park, where participants may explore the Pet Expo � free and open to the public from 1:00PM to 5:00PM � registered guests can then pick up their complimentary goodie bag, filled with unique keepsakes, samples, toys and special discounts to some of the Gaslamp Quarter's pet-friendly restaurants and shops. Guests will also get to enjoy live music and special pet presentations on the "Cat" walk stage. After and during the festivities pet lovers are welcome to enjoy "Yappy Meow-ers" (Happy Hours) at member businesses around the Gaslamp Quarter.

- Best for Holiday Attractions Because: There are more pets than you can imagine dressed up in holiday wear and other costumes. It's fun for the entire family!
