Don’t be alarmed if you see four-legged turkey’s trotting through Greenport Village on Saturday, November 22, 2014 – it’s the first annual Thanksgiving Pet Parade hosted by Harbor Pet!
Pet owners can bring their pups in their best, most creative Thanksgiving themed pet costume to win prizes and strut their stuff in the first ever Thanksgiving Pet Parade held in Greenport. The parade will start at 12:30pm on Saturday, November 22 at Harbor Pet, (25 Front Street, Greenport, NY), and go along the sidewalk around the village down to the park and back to Harbor Pet! Judges will be on hand to take into account the best turkey-day outfit, most creative, best owner and pet costume combo, most original and so on.
To enter your turkey, eh em’ dog into the contest it is $10 per dog and 100% of the proceeds from the entrance fee will be donated to the North Fork Animal Welfare League (NFWAL). To sign up for the costume contest arrive at 12 noon at Harbor Pet. Winners will be announced immediately following the pet parade and attendees can stay for a Yappy Hour and enjoy refreshments, (for humans and dogs alike), treats by Life is Grruff, giveaways and more.
