Glitter, Glitz, and Glam- these are three words that can be associated with Mardi Gras. You also can’t forget the beads and King Cake! At the Brevard Humane Society, we enjoy celebrating the festivities as much as the next person, but what sets the Brevard Humane Society’s festivities apart is that we love to include some furry friendly “pet”-ticipants! In fact, this Mardi Gras celebration has become quite the masquerade! The Humane Society’s 14th Annual Mardi Gras “Paws in the Park” event will stroll through Riverfront Park in Historic Cocoa Village on Sunday, February 16th.
The fun begins at 10:00 am with events throughout the day. Pet Contests, Pet Parades, and Pet Adoptions will line the Park to provide some paws-itively fun entertainment for the whole family. This year, celebrity TV dog trainer Joel Silverman will be doing a seminar/demo, as well as a book signing! Don’t forget about the Food Trucks, Lure Course, and Live Music from “Nowhere to Rum”! As the French say, “Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler” (let the good times roll)!
Mardi Gras “Paws in the Park” is open to the public and admission is free. All proceeds raised from this event will directly benefit the homeless animals of the Brevard Humane Society.
