The Holiday Pet Parade, sponsored by the Sierra County Animal Relief Fund, invites all pet owners to bring their festively dressed pets to this fun-filled event. The parade will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday in front of Sierra Hardware in downtown Downieville. Everyone is welcome, and all entrants will receive a Petco gift card. Please have your pet on a leash or lead rope or otherwise contained. Please make sure that all young animals have their first set of vaccinations.
