Thousands crowded downtown streets Wednesday night for another 1st Wednesday Street Party with more than 200 dogs highlighting the event with the popular annual Pooch Parade.
The weather cooperated with temperatures in the low 80s for the evening.
Dogs of various sizes and breeds filled Lions Wayside Community Park ahead of the street party with owners signing them up to participate in the parade and some registering for show and tricks competitions.
Some of the dogs were in costume, ranging from a Mexican hat to a Lion-like groom. Some wore the green Guide Dog covers, green coats.
