Your typical parade—floats, marching bands, clowns, and more—are always a good time. In July, with a hop, skip, and a jump you can easily find yourself at a parade, as it's a common happening around the 4th of July. In Tecumseh, on July 20, one can find themselves at a different kind of parade, where they are sure to say, "Awww."
The 10th Annual Tecumseh Pet Parade returns much to the delight of many. Soft, cuddly, and furry animals will make their way to downtown Tecumseh at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 20 in droves, along with their owners. The theme of this year's parade is "Wild West Round Up", so dress your dog, cat, rabbit, horse, hamster, and more in their best wild west attire.
After dressing up yourself and your pet, gather at the First Presbyterian Church at 9:15 a.m. to register (top three go on to win prizes). The parade then commences down Chicago Blvd. and ends at Adams Park, where not only humans will be interacting and having a good time, but the pets as well.
To coincide with the Pet Parade, Bad Hair Day? Salon & Spa will be having a Pet Bake Sale, and Companion Animal Clinic will be offering a dog wash and nail trimmings for donations to Sharing To Assist Furry Friends.
The Pet Parade isn't the only fun happening in Tecumseh that weekend, either, so don't get too worn out. After a quick dognap, you and the family can explore Tecumseh's Annual Sidewalk Sales, where merchants will be offering some great deals on their fabulous merchandise on both July 19 and 20. Live music, yummy food, and art activities will accompany the sidewalk sales. Tecumseh's historic downtown, booming with great boutiques and speciality shops, is the perfect landscape for an afternoon of shopping, games, entertainment, and food.
A new event to this weekend is the "Pig Jig" Pig Roast and Street Dance on Saturday, July 20 from 2 to 11 p.m. Vistors can get their fill of a delicious pork roast sandwich meal and some tasty beer from a beer tent, before working it off with some line dancing in the evening. Live band performances are also scheduled to play throughout the event.
Let Tecumseh's adorable downtown be a place to take your adorable pet and family. With a Pig Roast, Pet Parade, and Sidewalk Sales scheduled the weekend of July 19, there isn't a better opportunity to explore Tecumseh this summer.
