Bring your four-legged friends to Lake Eola Park for a doggone good time at Orlando’s biggest pet parade. Aside from floats and scores of dogs running about, there’s dock diving for sporting dogs, a doggie kissing booth and even a costume contest for pups with a $200 grand prize. And who said humans can’t join in on the festivities? Paws in the Park is providing live music, food trucks, a beer garden and a body-painting booth with Skin Wars runner-up Shannon Holt. If you and your pet want to walk in the parade and/or participate in the costume contest, online registration is required prior to the event.

10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8 | Lake Eola Park, 512 E. Washington St. | | free
