Please note the following correction: The costume parade is actually going to be a costume contest similar to a pageant. Don't be discouraged, everyone will still be able show off their pets at the event before/after the contest. See you all there!

What a total disappointment. All advertisements, Union City Patch, Tri-City Voice, signs stated open until 4:00 PM. However, we got there before 3 and all but one booth and goats. No dogs, no cats. Music DJ stopped at 3 so we went home. Got here late because we had the Union City Holy Ghost to go to, but felt we would have time for both. Unfair to my Grand-daughter who was looking forward to this event. Union City police should have required that all participants commit to stay until 4:00 PM. Other people arrived after us and it was all shut down.

Sorry, sheep not goats. Too upset to text, lol.

I apologize for the disappointment. Please understand this event was made possible by vendors and animal organizations volunteering their time and efforts. Mandating their presence until the last minute was unreasonable due to the the reduction of people showing up. Feel free to visit your local animal shelter if you are interested in adopting a pet. Thank you.
