'Woof Dats' to paw their way through Olde Towne Slidell



Dogs have their day on the northshore Saturday, February 22nd.

The Krewe de Paws Canine Carnival Club will parade in Olde Towne Slidell at 10 a.m.
 
The theme for the 2014 parade is "4-Legged Woof Dat Nation."

Expect to see plenty of pooches dressed in Saints' attire.

Former Saints runing back Buford Jordan will serve as Celebrity Grand Marshal. He'll serve along with his dog, Sparkle, and his wife, Adries.
 
Proceeds from the parade go to local charities. Krewe President Denise Indorf says last year's parade raised $1,500.

Membership information and applications are available at Café du Bone Bakery & Boutique, 2253 Carey St. and at 4G Printing, 2141 First St.

Applications will be accepted the day of the event, but must be made by 8:30 a.m. Saturday. The parade will begin and end at the corner of Robert and Carey Streets.
 
The second annual Tailgating Pawty to benefit the proposed Camellia City Bark Park will be held at the parking lot on Robert Street behind KY's Restaurant.

Sunday, The Mystic Krewe of Barkus, the only officially licensed Mardi Gras krewe by and for canines, will take to the streets of the French Quarter for the 22st year.

The 2014 Barkus parade rolls will start at Armstrong Park promptly at 2pm and proceed on their traditional 15-block route through the Vieux Carre.
