There will be barking & bonnets galore at the 2015 event on Saturday 21st March at Gladstone Park, Balmain. The Easter Parade sees dogs & owners alike take to the red carpet to compete for fabulous prizes for Best Trick, Fluffiest Dog, Waggiest Tail, Happiest Dog, Best Dancer, Best Biscuit Catcher, Best Impersonation of a Day (by a human), Best Six Legs and many more!
Last year, dogs and owners were treated to a Cinco de Mayo fiesta with a Mariachi band. This year, the 15 piece Hawksbury Nepean Scottish Pipe & Drum Band will lead the Parade. There will be face painting, dog demonstrations, stalls all day and dog films from sunset to 10pm. The films are 'Big Red' and 'Umberto D'. See the Entertainment page for more information. These are unforgettable films.
