Do you have a dog that you want to show off and socialize to other dogs? Bring your friendly canine to the dog parade. The parade is a yearly event held at Mardi Gras. It is free for every person and every pup. However, if you'd like to make a donation to the open door animal sanctuary, you are more than welcome. The dog parade takes place on Feb., 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., but the actual parade is at 1 p.m.. Festivities like the wiener dog races will be going on sometime in between as well. This event is at the intersection of Allen and Menard in Soulard. For more info, go to www.stlmardigras.com.
