Fun Dog Show

Saturday, March 5, 2016

The Ballyshaners, in partnership with the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA), are proud to announce the Fun Dog Show to be held at Market Square in Old Town Alexandria, just prior to the 2016 Alexandria St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday, March 5. It is an event that brings out animal lovers of all kinds and lets our four-legged friends strut their stuff, shake a tail, and don their finest Irish Apparel.

This year, we are pleased to welcome back Dr. Katy Nelson, of The Pet Show with Dr. Katy, as the Master of Ceremonies.

We welcome animal lovers to come out to watch the show, and help judge events including Most Outrageous, Most Creative, Dog/Owner Look-alike, and Luckiest Dog. Register your dog today to win fabulous prizes!

Show registration (and advance online registration check in) begins at 10:30am the day of the event, and the show will begin promptly at 11am. Day of event on site registration is $25, and advance online registration is $20 and can be found on Eventbrite.

Winners, contestants, and dogs are invited to line up to lead the pre-parade kickoff from Market Square!

For more information about the AWLA, and to register for the Fun Dog Show, visit The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria's website.
