Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Mardi Gras parades kick off this weekend with the 2012 CAAWS Mystic Krewe of Mutts Parade. 

Baton Rouge Louisiana Mardi Gras Parade Mystic Krewe of Mutts

I

 

t's a family friendly parade with a good cause,.The entry fee of $25 for one person for one dog helps  raise money for the Capital Area Aminal Welfare Society.  This is a walking parade where dogs and their owners stroll along downtown Baton Rouge Louisiana streets in their finest Mardi Gras costumes.  Each year has a special theme.  The 2012 is a western theme "The Good, The Bad, and The Furry"

Imagine all the excitement of children seeing hundreds of dogs parade in front of them with owners throwing all kinds of toys and treets for them to chatch.  And there are many colors and styles of costumes.  The only limit is your imagination!  Short dogs, tall dogs, excited dogs, calm dogs, pedigree dogs, mixed breeds, you will find just about evey kind here.

Today's parade begins at 10am and is over at 4pm.  Ther will be music and bands and excited faces lining the parade route.  I guess you just have to be there to catch a little of the excitement, so here is a video o f part of last year's parade:

Hi Ann,

 What a great looking parade. I love the dogs. The bulldog with the pink tutu is adorable and so are the others. I love the name Mutts Parade. Thanks for sharing and I hope they made a lot of money too.
