Downtown Little Rock Partnership is hosting the 2nd Annual Barkus on Main. Presented by Hounds Lounge Pet Resort and Spa, this free and family friendly event will take place Sunday, February 11th on Main Street, along the Creative Corridor in downtown Little Rock.

The fun kicks off at noon and will feature live music, a beer garden and hurricane station, gumbo, crawfish boil, plenty of beads, and of course the Mardi Gras dog parade! The parade will begin at 2:00 p.m. at the intersection of 7th and Main Streets and travel up Main to its intersection with 4th Street.

After the parade, join Downtown Little Rock Partnership for a Mardi Gras Block Party, which will already be in progress in the 300 block of Main Street with other hosts: Soul Fish Café, Brewski's Pub & Grub, CJRW and Samantha’s Tap Room and Grill.
Registration for one dog is $30.00. The first 200 dogs to arrive will receive a complimentary Wag Bag, and all dogs will be eligible for prizes. Prizes will be awarded for Best Pet/Owner Look a-like Costumes, Best Dressed Pet, Best Small Dog Costume, Best Large Dog Costume, Most Original Costume, Best Float and Judge’s Choice.
