Palm Beachers are famously fond of their pets, and it’s almost impossible to walk down Worth Avenue without passing a standard poodle with a perfect haircut and super-cute accessories.
The Worth Avenue Pet Parade & Contest is not that. The pet parade is an over-the-top masquerade featuring dogs, cats, bunnies and lambs, all in costume. And their people, often in costume as well.
Owners and their pets compete for great prizes and the honor of being one of Palm Beach’s doggy divas. The event, which is planned for this Saturday, March 11, takes place in Via Amore and attracts hundreds of spectators and scores of pet entries vying for prizes in several categories.
Registration begins at 9:30. a.m., and there are categories for small (up to 15 pounds), medium (16-35 pounds) and large (36+ pound) pets. The contest will begin at 10 a.m.
