The third annual Barkus on Main: A Parade of Pet Proportions hits the Main Street Creative Corridor in downtown Little Rock on Sunday, March 31. A deluge of dogs will strut their stuff down the city streets with prizes for best dressed, owner/pet lookalikes and more.

But it doesn't end there. After the parade, the 300 block of Main Street will shut down for a Mardi Gras block party complete with gumbo, a crawfish boil, live music, a hurricane station and a beer garden.

Barkus on Main is presented by Hounds Lounge Pet Resort & Spa, with more locals like Soul Fish Cafe, Brewski's Pub & Grub, Bark Bar and Rebel Kettle Brewing getting in on the fun as well.

The festivities begin at noon, while the parade begins at 2:30 p.m. at 7th and Main. Registration for each dog is $20, and the first 200 dogs to arrive will receive a complimentary Bark Bar Wag Bag.
