The Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando’s “Paws in the Park” festival is returning to Lake Eola Park for its 28th year on Saturday, Feb. 12.

The pet festival will have adoptable pets, doggy sports, dock diving for dogs, a pet costume contest and a parade.

Paws in the Park will kick off at 10 a.m. and end at 4 p.m.

Pet Alliance executive director Steve Bardy says the organization is extra happy about the festival’s return after a very challenging year. Pet Alliance’s Orlando location caught fire this September and the building was almost totally destroyed.


“We could not think of anything better than gathering together outside with our incredible animal-loving community and celebrating the deep love we all have for our furry family members and friends at what is always a fun-filled and memorable day for everyone,” Bardy says.
