Taking the Lead : A Pet Parade with Integrity.

This is in an inclusive event that is free to participate and attend and is aimed towards people of all ages and all abilities.

Taking the Lead is a  public performance that requires you to get involved and bring your pet along. Imagine Civic square is your runway, you have two Mc’s discussing you and your pets fashion style, the Ferguson’s are playing  there is  a crowd and so much support.

This is a public performance with volunteer performers at the Civic Square precinct, and is guaranteed to be a fun and entertaining afternoon for all.

There are several ways to get involved:

If you love animals and love dressing up – then we want you on the runway. If you like to dress up , but do not have a pet – no problem, soft toys are welcome.

Everyone else – we want you in the audience.

To participate with your pet please contact to register your participation and find out about rehearsal times.

This is a free, inclusive all ages all pets event – *BUT please note you are responsible for your pets behaviour (and any business it may do) So, whilst all care is given by organisers – you are responsible for your pet.

The parade starts at 2pm on Saturday 10th of August.
