The Delray Green Market 11th Annual Easter Bonnet Pet Parade

13:26 08 April in GreenMarket


The Delray GreenMarket will host its 11th Annual Easter Bonnet Pet Parade on Saturday, April 7, 2012.  Registration will begin at 9:00 am on the front lawn of Old School Square, 51 N. Swinton Avenue.  A suggested donation of $2 per registered pet will be collected to benefit the Animal Rescue Force.   The parade will begin at 10:00 am and the event is free to watch!

All types of domestic pets are invited to participate in the parade. Most contestants are dogs, but previous years have seen cats, goats, and birds strut their stuff, too! Local celebrity judges donning top hats and canes will lead the sidewalk procession east along Atlantic Avenue to the GreenMarket, on SE 4th Avenue.  Judging and prizes will be awarded for six bonnet categories: Most Original, Traditional, Funniest, Most Tropical, Most Frou-Frou and Owner/Pet Look-A-Like.

Parade your pet or come as a spectator, then stay to shop with the GreenMarket vendors and enjoy the live entertainment.  It’s a great event that’s fun for the entire family.  For more information contact Delray GreenMarket Manager Lori Nolan at (561) 276-7511 or
