Dogs on Parade Registration

Dogs on Parade 2015 imageDogs on Parade is July 21 at the Hillsboro Tuesday Marketplace

Dogs on Parade is a fun community event for the whole family, including the dog! Held in the plaza at the Hillsboro Civic Center at 1st and Main in downtown Hillsboro, dogs and their owners strut their stuff, surrounded by the sights, sounds and smells of the Tuesday Marketplace.


5:30 - Interactive K9 Games. This is a great way to get involved and maybe even win a prize. Last year we played "My dog can do that" and "Are you smarter than a Golden Retriever?" with great success. Looks for these games and more (if time allows).

7:00 - Parade. Join us for a short walk through the market, past vendors, musicians and adoring fans.

7:30 - Best Trick, Best Costume, Dog / Owner Look Alike, Biggest Dog and Littlest Dog (over 1 year)

Dogs on Parade is also an opportunity to raise money for the animals at the Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter. We suggest a $5 donation per entry, but nobody will be turned away for lack of funds.
