First Friday in October will feature a
Main Street Delaware’s October 5 First Friday celebration features the 8th annual downtown pet walk.
Registration is $10 per pet, which nets the pets (and their parents) a treasure map to downtown businesses providing special treats along with a doggie bag to collect their loot.
The pet walk will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., stepping off from the Main Street Delaware tent at Sandusky and Winter streets.
As they check-in, registered pets will be photographed for posting in a Main Street Delaware Facebook album. The pet receiving the most “likes” will be named the “Furry Marshal” of Main Street Delaware’s Dec. 3 Christmas Parade. Pets are encouraged to dress up for a secondary prize, "Geekiest Pet." The costumed pet receiving the most online votes will win a prize basket, provided by Delaware County District Library.
Pet walk registration will be limited to the first 100 animals. Registration is available on the night of the event at the Main Street Delaware office.
