Hundreds of pups in costume will stroll down Washington Avenue and end in Parfet Park for a family-friendly fair.
The parade is free to watch, while parade entrants are $25 per pup. Proceeds of this annual event benefit the more than 12,000 animals that Foothills Animal Shelter cares for annually.

In December 2017 the City purchased the Delong property at 395 23rd Street for the purpose of creating a neighborhood park, which will fill a void in the parks master planning process for the community. The new neighborhood park will be located on 23rd Street, between East Street and Table Heights Drive. The planning process for the new park is just beginning. The area is a blank slate with no plans currently in place; the Parks, Recreation and Museums Advisory Board (PRMAB) is seeking public input on how the area should be developed.
Please join city staff and the Parks, Recreation and Museums Advisory Board on Monday, September 16, 2019 at the Golden Community Center, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for the first step in the planning process. Rod Tarullo, Director of Parks, Recreation and Golf, will conduct two 15-minute park development presentations at 6:45 p.m., and again at 7:45 p.m. Each will follow with Q&A and open discussion.
The intent of the public process is to generate ideas from the community. For questions on the public process, please contact Stacy Turner, 303-384-8191 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
