It's a Silverton tradition you have to see to believe



KaliIt’s something everyone – pet owners to spectators – must experience to understand why this event is a wonderful example of what it means to be a part of the Silverton community.

The 84th annual Silverton Pet Parade is Saturday, May 21. Alpacas to cats and dogs to horses begin lining-up on Coolidge Street at 9:30 a.m.

What makes the parade a visual delight is seeing how pets are dressed-up and how kids manage to bring their goldfish, snake, rabbit or chickens to the parade.

The parade begins promptly at 10 a.m. and travels Main Street to First Street, ending at Eugene Field School. Spectators sit side-by-side on the sidewalks, enthusiastically cheering while children dash to snatch candy thrown by parade participants.

A tradition since 1932, the Silverton Kiwanis Club organizes the event. This year’s Grand Marshal is Fire Pup, the Dalmatian who is honorary member of each fire station.

The Silverton High School girls’ basketball team was chosen as honorary grand marshals for winning the 5A state championship.

The Pet Parade is more than a chance for pets to stroll the downtown streets of Silverton. It’s really about joining together as a community and celebrating one another and cherishing the simple, yet magical moments of life.

An event not to be missed.
