The Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando (Website) will once again host its annual pet festival and parade Paws in the Park event in Lake Eola Park on Saturday, February 12 from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.  

The event will kick off at 10 a.m. the signature Pet Costume Contest with “celebrity” judges (including myself) and cash prizes. This year’s costume themes include Stars of Film & TV, Favorite Food, and Dogs with Jobs (just like last year).  Participants and their dogs can register online and invite their friends and family to join them for the special award ceremony, costume contest, and festivities. 

Other event activities include the return of the dock diving pop-up pool for dogs, lure courses, a beer garden, a variety of food trucks and shopping, as well as pet adoption opportunities.  Pet Alliance’s mobile vet unit will also be on-site and providing free vaccines. 

Paws in the Park supports the mission of Pet Alliance to educate, shelter, place, and heal pets and their families, and funds raised from the event is estimated to help Pet Alliance save over 4,000 dogs and cats this year.
