Costumes will be awarded prizes in categories including small dog, large dog, dog/owner look alike and multiple dogs — the more festive, cuter and cleverer the outfit, the better. Registration for the parade starts at 12:30 p.m. and steps off at 2 p.m., led by Santa himself.
Proceeds benefit the SPCA Cincinnati and adoptable dogs will be onsite for meet-and-greets.
Mount Adams bars and restaurants — including Blind Lemon, Bowtie Cafe, Chapter, Amigos, Pavilion and Yesterdays — are also making their patios pooch friendly for the day.
12:30 p.m. registration; 2 p.m. parade Dec. 8. Suggested donation to the SPCA Cincinnati at registration. Mount Adams, spcacincinnati.org.
