The Faribault Pet Parade is a long-standing tradition in Faribault and sparks the creativity of community members in the surrounding area, giving their beloved pets an opportunity to strut their stuff! However, you don’t need a pet to join this parade – to be a participating member of the parade, simply consider the theme and prepare accordingly. Participants can choose a category to enter in or gather some friends and build a float. Many local daycares and business build floats, too.

Following the parade, “Due North” a Twin Cities-based a capella group will be performing kid-friendly tunes at the Central Park bandshell as part of the city’s Concerts in the Park series.

Date: Aug. 2

Time: 7 p.m.

Theme: Blast Off to Outer Space

Location: Parade starts on the corner of 2nd Avenue NW and Ninth Street NW. Parade follows Second Avenue NW and ends at Central Park. Stay tuned for a map of the parade staging area.

Categories: Costumes, Wagons, Cats, Dogs, Unusual Animals, Farm Animals, Horses, Bikes, Scooter, Rollerblades, Golf Carts, and Battery-powered vehicles.
