Show off your pet in the Pet Parade!
The Cotton District Arts Festival Pet Parade gives pet owners a chance to show off their pets. Pets of all sizes can strut their stuff through the streets of the Cotton District in the official CDAF Pet Parade, held on the morning of the festival. Feel free to enter your pets, dress them up, and show them off for all to see. The parade ends at the festival's Local Stage, where prizes are awarded!
Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
1. Best Pet/Owner Look-a-like Costumes
2. Best MSU Spirit Costume
3. Most Original Costume
4. BEST PET TRICK
5. Judges Choice
This year we are adding a PET TRICK competition, to be performed at the end of the parade on the South Stage (awards stage). There is a box to check on the Pet Parade Application to indicate if you wish to participate in the pet trick competition. Please check the box and practice, practice, practice.
We are looking forward to seeing some exciting "dress up" costumes on all of our sweet pets of all kinds.
Don't be shy, go all out! Your Pet is a 'One of a Kind'!
