The Roanoke Fall Festival will feature a pet parade on Sept. 5.
Pets and owners may register at 5:30 p.m. at the entrance to the Roanoke Park, and the parade begins at 6 p.m. Entries will be judged in several categories - most creative, owner/pet look alike, best dressed pet and best combo.
Only one pet is allowed per entry, and each pet must be leashed, crated or securely restrained. No large hoofed animals are allowed.
Children younger than 5 must be accompanied by an adult.
