Frisco’s Mardi Gras Dog Parade

Mardi Gras 4Paws, inspired by the Bacchus Parade in New Orleans, comes to Frisco on Saturday, March 2, 2019 from 2:30pm-4:00pm with its own version of Mardi Gras for our four-legged friends! Hosted by the Town of Frisco, Hope for Animals – Clear Creek Rescue and The Lost Cajun, this event is a costumed parade for dogs and their families.

All proceeds benefit Hope for Animals – Clear Creek Rescue which helps abandoned, lost and suffering animals through rescue, shelter and public education.


  • 2:30pm – Registration begins and dogs and their humans converge on 3rd Avenue between Main Street and the alley
  • 2:30pm-4:00pm- Yappy Hour- Enjoy listening to festive Mardi Gras music while you sip New Belgium beer, wine or coffee or hot chocolate during Yappy Hour. The Lost Cajun will donate delicious gumbo and beignets and we did not forget the pooches…we sell our own version of bottled Doggie Beer too! Even if you don’t have a mutt, come join the fun as a spectator.
  • 3:00pm- The parade starts and travels down Main Street from 3rd Avenue to 7th Avenue along the sidewalk and back up the other side of the street for full viewing of the colorful canines and their entourage.
  • 3:30pm- Canine Costume Contest- Following the parade, prizes will be awarded for dogs in costumes only, for a King and Queen and a “Belinda’s Best” category to commemorate the late Belinda Griffin, who inspired this event.
