" Barkus Gets Animated:
A tribute to the characters that
tickle our funny bones"
Sunday, February 10

Did you grow up reading the Sunday comics? Are you addicted to Disney? Do you dream of being a super hero? Then you will enjoy getting in character for this year's Barkus parade! Join us on Sunday, February 10th in historical downtown McKinney when the 2013 Artistic Krewe of Barkus Parade celebrates animated characters from the Sunday funny papers, comic books, movies, and television. It's going to be Loony Tunes -- one big Toy Story!
We're calling all cartoon characters that have touched our hearts and made us laugh. Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny may parade along side your favorite Super Heros. As in year's past, it's a family affair - the Simpsons, The Incredibles, and the Flintstones may arrive. 101 Dalmations will be there sniffing out a good time. The only limit is your imagination.
Costume prizes will be awarded in each size group, for best combo and best in show. This year's top honor will be crowned King of the Hill. The costume parade is limited to 250 dogs with a small entry fee, but the Pawty in the park and on the Square is open to all at no charge.
Registration: $5 per dog and/or float
Deadline: Feb 3
