Audubon Crazy Days, Pet Parade Saturday

Audubon Crazy Days and the fourth annual Pet Parade is Saturday, June 12.

There will be judging in five categories -- Best Costume: you and your pet dress up; Best Trick: is your pet the smartest; Most Unusual: do you have a pet no one else has; Plush Pals: stuffed animal with the best story; Largest Pet: just what it says, judged by overall size.

Be as creative as possible. Use wagons, bikes, balloons, pictures, streamers and much more. Think fun, but remember to keep you and your pet's safety in mind. Also, be sure that you bring water for them to drink and leashes or cages to keep them controlled. A parent or guardian must be present.

Entry and judging will be on the west side of the Lake Park-Audubon Elementary School in the Country Wood Products parking lot.

All entrants will receive a participation ribbon, a free child's cone from the Dairy Queen in Detroit Lakes and a fun size bag of chips from Old Dutch. And there will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd for all categories. All 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive a ribbon from their category and a free personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut.

Entry is from 9 to 11 a.m. Judging will begin at 11. All participants will receive their ribbons prior to the parade, which starts at noon.

The parade will be lead by Smokey the Bear and McGruff the Crime Dog, unless inclement weather says otherwise.
