Easter Pet Parade on South Congress 2014 Tonto Lone Ranger

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.
