PETS: Pets that are well-controlled by the participant and on a leash are welcome in the parade. Keep in mind the hot mid-July temperatures make street pavement hot for paws and be sure to bring water for your pet to drink at the end of the parade. Horses are welcome also! Riders must have a support person to scoop up poop immediately during the parade and in the staging area.
