The Nassau Humane Society will host Parade of Paws on Saturday, December 6 at the Old Railroad Depot in downtown Fernandina Beach.
Parade will start at 11:00 am. Pet owners can register and parade their dogs on the sidewalks of Centre Street, with all proceeds benefiting the Nassau Humane Society.
Many people dress their pets in festive attire, ranging from the simple to the elaborate.
Sometimes their owners wear costumes too.
Trophies are awarded for the top three “best dressed” entrants, with gift certificates in the categories of “best (pet) personality,” “looks most like owner” and “most original.”
You can bring your camera or smartphone, and a volunteer will take pictures of you and your dog with Santa.
Registration is $15 per dog. You can pre-register before Saturday at Redbones, the NHS Dog Park, our Second Chance store, or at NassauHumaneSociety.com. On Saturday morning, there will also be late registration at the Depot starting at 10:00 am.
