Mardi Paws on the Northshore!

2003 Captain

Don’t forget to check out Mardi Paws 2010 along Lakeshore Dr. in Mandeville.  It’s sure to be tons of fun!  All dogs are required to be in costume or at least heavily adorned with beads, feathers, etc.  It’s always fun to watch dogs who have been dressed up in costume.  Really, I don’t think anything can beat it.  It is, perhaps, the reason we live.  The reason we get up in the morning.  The reason we carry on in this cruel, cruel world.  Dogs in costume- they save us from ourselves.

The parade is on Sunday, February 21, 2010 at 12:30 pm.  Same day registration – $15 for one dog, $45 for 3 or more dogs from the same household.  Or just come and watch the festivities!  Please visit Mardi for all the details and contact info for the parade!

Don’t miss it, or you’ll be kicking yourself later!!

Mystic Krewe of Barkus 2010

It’s almost that time, again!  Mardi Gras 2010!  I can see it now: Beads!  Beer!  Barking?  Yep!  The Mystic Krewe of Barkus proves that even dogs have a place in our beloved New Orleans traditions.  The parade occurs on Sunday, February 7, 2010.  It begins at Armostrong Park at 2pm and will follow the traditional route.  There is also a “Pawty” before, during, and after (gotta love new orleans!) at Armstrong Park starting at 10:30 am.

If you plan on attending the Pawty, it is free of charge to one and all.  If you plan on dressing your pooch up in a fantastic Mardi Gras costume and allowing him to romp around the streets of New Orleans with all of his party-loving pooch friends, you’ll have to register either online or on-site.  If you choose to register the day of the parade, you will sign up at Armstrong Park and pay a $50 registration fee.  Signing up online saves you a bit of dough.  Additionally, if you want to register without attending the parade, you can do so online for $20 which will benefit homeless animal rescue and adoption.

Don’t forget about the Barkus Royal Ball!  Friday, February 13.  Unfortunately, this black-tie event is for humans only.  Find out more information here.
