Pets participate in Pass Christian’s annual Pet Pawrade over the weekend

Pass Christian had their annual Pet Pawrade at the War Memorial Park. It’s a tradition to do the parade the day after Christmas in the Pass.

Pet owners were able to get creative for a chance to win awards based on best dressed pet, pet handler, and best in show.

All pets were grouped by size starting with petite, medium, and El Grande. The parade has more than 45 dogs that participate each year.

A registration fee of $10 is charged and used to benefit Animal Aid of Mississippi Rescue. Dogs were also available to adopt on scene.

During the event, pets and their owners were able to take pictures with Santa. Elf of the Pass Mary Bourdin said, “I think it’s great. It just shows once again how great Pass Christian is and the people on the Gulf Coast community. They come out. They love it. They get to take pictures of their dog with Santa. It’s just a fun event. We really love it because it is all about the pets and the fact that people come back year after year means they like it too.”

To enter next year’s parade, you can register an hour before the parade at the park. With registration, you receive a goody bag for your pet.
