PET PARADE—When Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence, it is doubtful he imagined a country as wonderful as one that allows all creatures great and small (and tied to balloons) to march together with such glee—or, even could have forecast the joy of three-legged races and watermelon eating contests.
10 am. Pet parade staging area off NW Bond, at NW Louisiana. Old Fashioned Festival at Drake Park. Both: Free.
