Like most Mardi Gras celebrations, Krewe du Pooch's "parade" and other fun activities will be virtual in 2021! Sign up for the virtual fun walk/run to raise money for your favorite local rescue organization.
You can complete the fun run or walk anytime between Jan 6 and Feb 20, 2021, from ANYWHERE, and you are encouraged to do it with your pet(s)! Remember to take lots of pictures and share them on Facebook and Instagram, tagging Krewe du Pooch pages so the krewe can cheer you on and recognize your efforts in fundraising.
This year the costume contest is going virtual, too! Make a video of your pet(s) in costume in keeping with the theme "Go Dog Go and other Dr. Seuss Favorites." Be creative, there is a lot of material to choose from! Handlers can get dressed up in theme too.
In your video, give the name of your pet(s) and your costume, and any details about the costumes that you wish to point out. Complete and return a registration form and email along with your video to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, February 8, 2021.
Judges will select favorites for King, Queen, and the Krewe, and post on Facebook for voting by Krewe du Pooch page followers. Winners will get pet-related gift baskets from Adventure Pets and photos will receive lots of exposure on the Krewe du Pooch website and social media.
