The event takes place at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, when local animal lovers will have a chance to show off their pets -- dressed in costumes or all natural -- during the Farmers Market in the village's downtown. Registration and parade lineup will begin at 5 p.m. in front of the Wauconda Activity Center, 100 N. Main Street.

Prizes will be awarded for the costume that shows the best school spirit; owner/pet look-a-like; most exotic pet; and for the best trick. Winners will be announced at the conclusion of the parade.
