Following the parade of canines attired in Easter costumes, kids will have an opportunity to visit and have photos taken with the Easter Bunny from 4 to 5 PM.
All dogs must be leashed, wear ID tags at all times and have rabies and other vaccinations. No aggressive dogs are permitted nor puppies under the four months of age.
There is no fee to enter the Easter Pet Parade. Participants are encouraged to bring their pets about 20 minutes before the start of the parade. the
Steve Sansone, Executive Director of the Yonkers Downtown BID, said that the BID’s “very popular Halloween Pet Parades inspired us to stage a similar pet parade for Easter.” He added: “I’m sure this event will bring out the same creativity for original costumes as our past parades. It’s going to be a fun day for the entire family.”
