This weekend, if you want to see dogs and cats dressed up in clothes, here it is: As part of the 43rd Annual Pride proceedings, world renowned "lady", Miss Foozie will host the 6th Annual Pride Pet Parade and Costume Contest sponsored by Poopbags.com. Yep, beagles in bow ties and poodles in sneakers only on Saturday the 23rd at The North Stage. If your furry buddy wants to partake in the festivities or just likes to dress up once and a while, registration is free and opens at 11AM. The parade route is only two blocks long between Grace and Addison along Halsted so steak out your spot early. There will be prizes. [Racked Wire] Photo: Bigdogclothing
