TIME' S UP! DOGGIE PEDAL PARADE
Saturday, May 17, 2008

Meet 2 PM at the Traffic island on south end of Union Square East
(between Broadway & 4th Ave )

Bring your dog and bicycle to the first annual Doggie Pedal Parade!

The bicycle ride will demonstrate environmentally friendly ways to transport pets around the city and will include parade floats pulled by bicycles and decorated to honor selected animal rescue groups. The ride route will feature animal adoption sites and animal friendly locations.

Cyclists without dogs are also welcome!

Spectators are encouraged to join the cheering sections at selected points along the route, such as the Animal Haven Adoption Center at 251 Centre St, and are invited to meet at the end of the ride (approx 3:45 PM) for snacks and drinks at a doggie celebration near the Washington Square Park dog run at Washington Square South and Sullivan Street. Fred, the dog who was adopted from the ASPCA and went on to star in the most recent Broadway production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, will be signing pawtographs.

*To prevent any Ruff Riding and for the fun and safety of the group, non-social pets are asked to stay at home.
