NoTsuOh Pet Parade

Connally Plaza
1100 Bagby Street
Houston, TX 77002

The Heritage Society is reviving No-Tsu-Oh, Houston’s biggest historic celebration, and our first public event is a costumed pet parade and dog fest. The original No-Tsu-Oh ran from 1899 to 1915 and was filled with over a week of parades and celebrations. As we build toward a citywide renewal of this iconic Houston event with a focus on history, culture and the arts, we figured what better place to start than with our beloved pets.

One of the afternoon’s highlights will be a costumed pet parade. Pet owners are encouraged to dress up, as well, and even decorated strollers are allowed. The number of entries is limited and only friendly, socialized, well-behaved pets will be allowed. Prizes will be awarded based on overall impression and creativity.

Other pet-related entertainment will be offered along with food, beverages and a variety of vendors. Pet adoption services will also be present. More features will be added, so please check back for updates.

It takes place on Sunday, October 28 from 3 to 5 PM in our Connally Plaza, 1100 Bagby between Lamar and Dallas.
