Pets Parading

Sneak a peek at some of our favorite costumes from Jo's 15th Annual Pet Parade

Jo's Hot Coffee on South Congress was home base for one of Austin pet owners' most beloved traditions: the 15th Annual Lyndon Lambert Memorial Pet Parade.

From costumes like Mickey Mouse to the Pup formerly known as Prince, man's best friend got a chance to don some unique outfits before hitting the street. Top prize during the costume contest went to Christina Pugeilera, who sat on a red vinyl chair in front of a button a la The Voice. Christina Puguilera and her owner received a one night stay at Hotel San Jose, a gift card and dog bowl from George Pet Shop in San Francisco, a Jo's gift card and a basket full of doggie goodies.
