Costume Contest

Think you have the cutest dog in the neighborhood, and the costuming skills to match? Do you already know your dog is a winner but are looking for a way to validate this? Join our costume contest!

This year’s theme is Georgia on Our Minds!

We can’t wait to see your dogs in their best costumes! It’s totally fine if your dog sports a costume that is not related to the theme. We just want to see what great ideas you come up with! Enter your dog for a chance to win accolades, bragging rights and PRIZES from our fabulous costume contest sponsors!

To enter the contest, you simply need to register for the paradeĀ  and pay the parade and costume contest fees.

Check in at 425 Barber St. (former location of Jittery Joe’s Roaster) between 2:30-3:15. Judging begins at 3:15. Contestants will parade in front of local judges and will receive their awards at its end.

Please thank the businesses who have donated WONDERFUL prizes for the costume contest!
