Dog Parade, Tree Lighting and Golf Cart Parade
This year`s 2nd Annual Dog Parade will start and end at City Park beginning at 4 pm on Friday, November 23, 2012. Adorn you pup in their favorite Christmas attire and then have them proudly strut their stuff! The Parade route will begin at City Park, head down 2nd Street, around Dock Street and back to the Park where the leader of the "Pack" will be awarded honors of "Top Dog."

There will be time to catch a bite to eat or tuck your pup safely at home before the Tree Lighting Ceremony, traditionally held at dusk at City Park. Cookies, Cider and Cocoa will be served as a Holiday treat and goody bags will be handed out to the kids, generously donated by The Faraway Inn.

Then enjoy the wonder of the brightly lit Golf Cart Parade as it meanders down the streets of Cedar Key.
