Pets of all shapes and sizes (under 300 lbs) are invited to show off their best Halloween costumes at our Annual Pet Paw-rade on Saturday, October 17th, 2020 at 10AM, rain or shine.
This event typically takes place at the Hometown Harvest Festival, which is cancelled for 2020 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and gathering limitations. Instead, Parks and Recreation has organized for the Pet Paw-rade to be LIVE Streamed online for all of town and our neighbors near and far to tune in to watch.
Participants will line up, with a minimum of 6 feet physical distancing, wear masks when necessary, and show off their best costumes. This event will take place at Wappo Park in St. Helena, and all spectators are required to tune in ONLINE.
