During the month of February, towns across the US take time to celebrate Mardi Gras in a doggone friendly, fund-raising way.
The streets are filled with costumed dogs, themed floats, and of course, beads! Music fills the air while dogs are pulled in decorated carts, driven around in remote controlled dog-sized cars, and led by their owners, who toss beads and other parade favors to the cheering crowd.
Bribing the judges was allowed and encouraged, with one group going so far as to plop a six-pack of Landshark beer on the judges’ table.
