Summer is actually here…and I think it’s here to stay! The weather for this Saturday is looking great!  So far…it’s looking like it’ll be warm, sunny and in the 80’s, a perfect day to come to Elmhurst’s 24th Annual Pet Parade! An event put on by the Spring Road Business Association and the Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce, this is one fun family filled event that you want to come to!

Get ready to see a line of decked out pets walking down Spring and Vallette Roads. ALL pets are welcomed to march in the parade! But, it doesn’t stop there…

Following the pet parade, enter your pet in the Pet Trick contest which will be in the parking lot of the Silverado Grill (where the parade ends). Who wouldn’t want to see pets do some crazy tricks?!

Awards will be given to Most Obedient Pet, Best Dressed Pet, Best Groomed Pet, Oldest Pet, Most Original Pet Trick and Most Exotic/Unusual Pet. Pets registered by today, May 15th will be eligible for these awards.

If you still would like to be part of the fun and don’t have a pet, don’t fret! You can deck out your bike and ride it in the parade. To add to the list of fun stuff to do…available for kids: face tattoos, bike decorating and a Moon Bounce all for FREE! Pet portraits will be available too!

The parade begins at the Ahlgrim Funeral Home parking lot at 1pm promptly and check in is at 11:30am so be there or be square!
