Put-in-Bay Pooch Parade 2021 – Bring Fido Along!

Put-In-Bay Pooch Parade is always a fun time! Bringing your fur-baby along for a little adventure and family fun! Join us for our annual Put-in-Bay Ohio Pooch Parade. Registration begins at 10 am at the DeRivera Park gazebo, and this annual island event promptly starts at 10:30 am. Dogs can enter the parade for a nominal $10 entry fee. A doggie goodie bag is included in your registration fee. You can compete for prizes as well. Looking for a way to show everyone that your dog is the best? There are numerous categories for pups to win! We are sure your puppy will find a way into the judge’s eyes!

Judges will evaluate and determine the smallest, largest, cutest, smallest, most significant, best dressed, most talented, group best dressed, and the dog that looks most like its owner. Mother Of Sorrows Church is the Sponsor of this fun family event. And wouldn’t be possible without the event’s main sponsor, Mother of Sorrows church. One thing to add: It goes without saying! No cats allowed!
