With help from our wonderful sponsors, the 2nd annual Edgewater Pet Parade was a success! Much of the neighborhood came out to see Fido and his buddy’s in their cute outfits and ready to strut their stuff. There was an agility course for the furry companions and four categories for prizes: best costume, best trick, smallest or biggest pet, and owner and pet look-alike contest! All of the event’s proceeds went to Care for Real Pet Food Pantry.
NBC’s LeeAnn Trotter hosted the parade.The judges for the contest were Elliott Bambrough, co-host of Chicago’s Best, Dr. Tony Kremer, Founder of Old Town Animal Care Center, Nancy Meyerson, Board Chair of Care For Real and Ed Kaczmarek co-founder of Urban Pooch.
