My little town has really expanded its offerings for residents as far as activities and events go. We had our first Christmas parade and 4th of July celebration last year, so this year will be the second go-round. We had a GPS Easter Egg Hunt. We paid tribute to our veterans on Veterans Day.
This year we’re talking about a Halloween event like a Zombie Walk, but I’d also like to see a Pet Parade at some point. How do you start a pet parade? The folks at the Burlingame Pet Parade offer advice,
As many watch the parade as are in the parade. We haven’t had any real problems with our parade and we do get a little more organized every years ….and we are still very disorganized!
Our rules are simple:
- No political or commercial promotions.
- Foot power only (exceptions may be arranged).
- Groups are encouraged to identify themselves with a banner or sign.
Our biggest learning is that it isn’t the pets that are the trouble .. it’s the owners!!!
Clearly cooperation with the local council & the police is a must and something that has to be scheduled early.
The good news is we would have full cooperation of our council and police! I think I’ll share this with our Parks & Recreation Department and see what we can get started!
