Beggin' Pet Parade Brings Out the Wild and Crazy Costumes
by Betty Moore,
ST. LOUIS, MO, (, January 31, 2016 - An overcast sky and warm breezes welcomed thousands of pet lovers, young and old, dogs of all sizes and breeds and the curious to the 23rd annual Beggin'® Pet Parade in the historic neighborhood of Soulard.

Although, it's just one of many activities throughout the Mardi Gras season, this unique parade just tugs at the heart. Straining at their leashes, dogs were paraded down 12th Street to Russell and back up 9th Street to Lafayette and then to Soulard Market for the Coronation of the King and Queen of the Pet Parade.

Along the route, bystanders held our their hands and screamed "Throw me some beads". Kids sat on their fathers shoulders to take picture with their phones. Others sat on the side, cuddling their pets and shouting out commentary to match that of a sports game.

As St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Trevor Rosenthal, who served as Grand Marshal, came into view, the crowd cheered loudly. He responded by throwing beads and waving to the fans. Following closely behind, Fredbird waved playfully from his white jeep.

Many dogs were lucky to have rides for the parade. Two white poodles in a wagon with a sign "Just Married" and a trail of Miller Light cans were pulled along the route close to another wagon decorated as a "Pupweiser Wagon" with a dog wearing a polka dot shirt.

Tiny dogs peaked out from the safety of their owners arms as other smaller dogs ran briskly, hoping not to be trampled by larger dogs. Great Danes, Saint Bernards, Bullmastiffs and Irish Wolf Hounds drew admiring glances from the crowd, as did two ponies and a couple of chickens.

The event, which benefits the Open Door Animal Sanctuary, also featured the Wiener Dog Derby and live musical performance by That 80s Band at the corner of South Eighth Street and Lafayette Avenue. This year was the biggest in event history, raising over $19,000 to help provide homeless cats and dogs with a chance to find a forever family.
