- Downtown OWA
It’s a St. Pawtty’s Day celebration!
Everyone loves their furry friends, so OWA invites you to bring them along to enjoy the fun at our 4th annual St. Pawtty’s Day celebration! This is a family-friendly, free event featuring music, a pet parade, doggie adoptions and a costume contest!
OWA will partner with local animal rescues to offer pet adoptions for dogs to find their forever homes, and we’re paying half of the adoption fee for each animal adopted at the event! Plus, you can register for the festive pet parade through Downtown OWA for only $10 with your donation going to support local animal shelters!
Be sure to dress in your St. Pawtty’s best! Immediately following the pet parade, a costume contest will take place on the OWA Island Stage with cash prizes given for Mr. & Mrs. St. Pawtty’s, Most Creative, Dynamic Duo and OWA Choice.
The 4th annual St. Pawtty’s Day is a celebration of pet owners, pet lovers and the St. Patrick’s Day holiday. All of this while DJ Patrick plays the friskiest of fun tunes. We hope you can join us and make this annual event a St. Pawtty’s Day tradition!
