2018 Hootin an Hollarin pet show will be at 10 a.m. Saturday
All different types of pets are welcome in the fun, lighthearted Hootin an Hollarin pet show directed each year by veterinarian Konnie Plumlee. Contestants and their owners are asked to sign up in front of the main stage on the east side of the square between 9:30 and 9:45 a.m. before the show starts at 10.
Some pets come in costume, some show off fancy tricks and others wow the judges simply by being adorable. Bring your companion of any species, show the crowd and the judges what it can do, and share in all the fun and animal love. Pet show judges are quite imaginative in creating categories and awards so that all contestants win a ribbon and a title of some kind. Past categories have included hardest working, best behaved, best wagger, most unusual, best costume, best personality, most talented, friendliest and best in show. Who knows what title your pet might win!
All animals must be restrained. Konnie also emphasizes that temperatures inside vehicles quickly reach dangerous levels, and pets should not be left inside before or after the show. A container of water is provided for pets at the show if it’s needed.
