Reading 375 Dog Parade

June 15

The Reading 375 Committee is delighted to announce Reading’s first ever Dog Parade. It will be a historic event – the largest gathering of K-9s in Reading’s history. Is your dog an important part of your family? Then you don’t want to miss out.

Event organizer Marcel Dubois is looking forward to the Dog Parade: “Dogs in Reading or any community play an important role because they can bring families closer together. Reading is a dog-friendly town. An event like the Reading 375 Dog Parade will bring dog lovers throughout Reading together to share that same feeling with other residents throughout the community.”

Lyla, a mini-Australian Shepard, sports the Reading 375 bandana that all dogs who register for the Reading 375 Dog Parade will receive. Lyla belongs to Marcel Dubois, who is organizing the Reading 375 Dog Parade.

As to what inspired the idea of including a Dog Parade as part of the Reading 375 festivities, Marcel says, “I love dogs and produce a show for RCTV Studios called K9 Tails, which you can learn more about at In conversations with the Reading 375 Steering Committee, there was a lot of enthusiasm for an event just for the dogs of Reading.”

The Reading 375 Dog Parade will include group photos and interviews, a parade around the soccer field, and trail walks in the Town Forest. K-9 Tails and RCTV will be there to capture the event, so your dog could end up on TV!

All dogs who register will be given a commemorative Reading 375 bandana to wear and keep. All dogs who participate must be licensed, leashed, and accompanied by their owner at all times.
