St. Louis Things to DoHey St. Louis pet people! Do you know about the Purina Beggin’ Pet Parade during the Mardi Gras celebration on February 8? This is the 22nd annual parade!pparade_logo

Along with the #BegginPetParade there will be free Blue Traveler concert after the parade, games, Weiner dog races and costume contests. For each of the costume winners the winner gets their choice of $1,000 or a St. Louis Cardinals ticket package. Categories include “best sports personality”, “best Mardi Gras”, and “best celebrity look-alike”costumes.

The fee to register is $10 per pet but all the proceeds benefit Open Door Animal Sanctuary. You can register in advance or the day of the event.

We would love to take our new dog, Annie, to the parade but she is still nervous around other dogs. This is something we are going to work with her on so she can have some doggy play dates and be ready for this event next year.

There is something for everyone including a wine, beer, and whiskey taste, a Cajun cook-off, the Mayor’s Mardi Gras Ball, a few races and several parades!

Will you be attending the Beggin’ Pet Parade or any other Mardi Gras events this year?
