16th Annual Krewe of Barkus

Sunday, February 11, 2018

Embarking on its 16th annual successful run, Krewe of Barkus promises to be a howling hoot. In past years, more than 250 dogs participated in the parade alongside more than 4,500 spectators in awe of costumes, creatures and creativity. Patterned after the Mystic Krewe of Barkus in New Orleans, which was established to help abused and abandoned canines, Krewe of Barkus will feature a parade, vendor booths, interactive activities and more. Over $2,000 in prizes donated by the merchants of McKinney will be awarded to costume category winners. Theme: We are having a festival of nations and calling it "The Bark-A-Palooza Tour Around the World - Celebrating Countries & Cultures Across the Globe."
