Beggin’ Pet Parade 2015

It’s that time of year again – Mardi Gras. Pug and his BPFF once again participated in the Beggin’ Pet Parade, the largest gathering of costumed pets in the world! Make sure to scroll to the bottom for video. Check out my last post for all of Pug’s pics.

The registration tents were hidden, and the line for registration blocked the way to pre-registration. It was much more cramped than years past. And it definitely wasn’t suitable for the enormous crowds due to the unseasonably warm weather.
