Everyone knows the fairest residents of Port Melbourne neighbouring suburbs come on all fours and at the inaugural bayside -- Port’s Paw Parade -- you may catch a glimpse of the finest pups in town! On Saturday, 22 October 2016, Port Melbourne is proudly presenting their first annual Port’s Paw Parade from 11.00am - 5.00pm on Bay Street, Port Melbourne. With free registration, this colourful event will bring the community together as they celebrate their love for furry friends and give dog owners a chance to showcase their beautiful and best dressed canines. Event organisers are expecting 100's of registrations as Port residents show off their pet pooches!

Choose to dress up (you and your dog) or come as you are for a fun day for everyone - with the parade running from 11am - 1pm all dogs and their owners are invited to register their pup for free and take part in the parade. You will have the chance to win prizes and awards for the Best Dressed Dog, Best Dressed Owner and Best Dressed Couple- and more giveaways on offer as the day proceeds.

This Port Melbourne Spring Carnival event will also house "Dog Central", from 11am - 5pm on the bend of Bay St and Crockford St where you will find a variety of dog suppliers/services and exhibitors, market stalls, face painting, family entertainment and some very hilarious competitions including Most Look-Alike Dog and Owner and So You Think Your Dogs Got Talent. You will also have a chance to win a Dogs House valued at $500 in the auction - with all proceeds going to the Lord Smith Dog Shelter.

Next to Dog Central will be the Port's Paw Parade community Flea Market where everyone is welcome to bring their own table and items to sell with free registration at (www.3207port.com.au/garagesaletrail) - or for $20 you can reserve a spot and book a table in the market.
Register your pooch in the parade now at the Port's Paw Parade Website: (www.3207port.com.au/portspawparade) and get busy planning a fabulous outfit for yourself and your pooch to go into the competition to win some great prizes during the walk.

With Port Melbourne having more family K9's than any other suburb this event is sure to be popular amongst the community - where everyone is welcome to bring along their furry friends of all shapes and sizes - it is an awesome opportunity to bond with your best friend as well as make some new lifetime pals.
