Barking and bonnets at the Easter Dog Parade

You'd be barking mad to miss this Easter egg-stravaganza...

Move over kids, our fun-loving furry friends will take centre stage this coming Saturday (March 21, 2015) for the third annual Easter Dog Parade at Gladstone Park, Balmain, Sydney.

The Easter Dog Parade sees pooches and their human pals strut their stuff on the red carpet, each vying for the prize for Best Trick, Fluffiest Dog, Waggiest Tail, Happiest Dog, Best Dancer, Best Biscuit Catcher, Best Impersonation of a Day (by a human), Best Six Legs—plus stacks of other fun categories. And let’s not forget the Dog and Bonnet competition (runs from 10am-12pm)!

Whether your dog’s going to don an Easter bonnet or pull out all the stops with full-blown fancy dress, it’s sure to be an egg-cellent day. There will be stalls, a flamenco guitarist for you to kick your heels up to, doggy massage for tired pups, face painting, dog demonstrations, a sausage sizzle (of course!) and even Zoltar—the dog psychic.

While our four-legged friends might take precedence over the kids, there’s still plenty of fun for little people—like the kids bonnet making table. And at sunset you’re invited to kick back with your pooch, pals and kiddies to watch one of two G-rated family films.

Sound like a great day out for all, don’t you think?

Registration to the Easter Dog Parade kicks off at 8am (until 9.45am) so mosey down with your dog, completed form and your $4 entry fee and ready yourself for a pawsome, fun-packed day.
