The Guinness World Record holder for largest costumed pet parade in the world celebrates its 22nd birthday!
It’s a spectacle you won’t want to miss! Thousands of nattily festooned four-legged (and other animal friends) strut their stuff in style as they step off at 1 p.m. from 12th and Allen. Those deemed best dressed are selected as members of the Court of the Mystical Krewe of Barkus and make the cut to be part of the Coronation pageant (9th and Lafayette) where the King and Queen of Barkus are crowned.
Of course, the party continues after Coronation with a free concert at 9th and Lafayette next to Soulard Market.
