Can Beacon Barks add to the fun? Yes! This year, Beacon Barks joined Instagram and have been doing countdowns from as far back as 102 Days until the next Beacon Barks Parade. And that day has finally arrived! Here are some highlight photos from their Instagram, and what you can expect at tomorrow's parade:
|Everything starts at 10am, where the parade gathers at the West end |
of Main Street. The Blessing of the Animals is at 10:15, a costume contest
at 10:45, and the parade walks at 11:10am. Full schedule is at
|Nixie Sparrow is hand stamping dog tags. I have a tag like this for my dog,|
and it is the cutest! You definitely want one.
|Brook Farm Veterinary Center is handing out keychains|
at their vendor table, which comes in handy if you are a
member of the Beacon Dog Park, funding of which came
in part from a Beacon Barks Parade in years past!
|This guy, Leroy, is one of Beacon's most well known dog|
trainers, and will be doing a training demonstration.
|This pug, Bella, will actually be attending the parade, and|
you should just follow this motto in general.
|Shelter and rescue organizations will be in attendance, like this|
one - the Curly Tail Pug Rescue.
I am giving a special shout out to Roosevelt Vet on the Hudson for enabling my 15 year old German Shepherd/Chow Gerdy to walk in the parade for the first time! Ever since Roosevelt did an Partner Article with A Little Beacon Blog about their recommended osteoarthritis treatments for dogs, Gerdy has been getting one easy injection once a month, and she can now go up our front steps with minimal assistance, skip with excitement if we are going on a walk, and looks forward to walking to Main Street instead of turning around.
See you at the parade!
