Knoxville, Tenn. – It’s almost that time of year when downtown Knoxville goes dog-friendly, and the biggest pet cat kicks off in town – Tuesday Growl!
The 15th Annual Tuesday Grown Pet Parade and Festival is scheduled for March 5 at 11 a.m. This Saturday, downtown Knoxville will be filled with pets and their owners dressed in their best costumes, parading through the city before settling into World’s Fair Park for a Festival.
Young-Williams Animal Center held a contest to see who could create the best logo for this year’s celebrations. A mother-son duo won with their design featuring a wide array of different types of animals all dressed up for the party.
The design features a snake, lizard, horse dancing on a disco ball, cats and dogs wearing iconic Mardi Gras beads and a dancing cow on the side of the road.
It was created by Aimee and Caleb Durden.
“Their design will be on this year’s t-shirts and used in event promotions,” officials said on social media. “We love that they incorporated multiple species to show the variety of animals we help!”
Tuesday Growl includes a costume contest, vendors, and a citywide celebration!
