Worth Avenue’s 23rd Annual Pet Parade and Contest is dominated, as you’d expect, by dogs. Tiny dogs with top hats. Medium-sized dogs with mohawks. Large dogs wearing Burberry.
The competition is both fun and fierce. Which makes it even more hilarious to learn that one of last year’s winners was a pig named Mona Lisa.
That’s right. Not a pug. A pig, a black-and-white porker dressed in a pink tutu. Which makes us wonder what we’ll see this year.
Come out this Saturday, March 12, to watch or to enter your small (up to 15 pounds), medium (16-35 pounds) or large (36 pounds and up) pet. The event takes place in Via Amore. Prizes are awarded in several categories, including Most Adorable, Most Creative, and Most Obedient. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and judging begins at 10.
