DOGS OF THE TARTAN CROSS PARADE

The Perth Kilt Run is a spectator sport with lots of side activities and attractions – such as the first-ever Dogs of the Tartan Cross Parade being organized by Paws Oasis in Perth. Judging will occur near the Bandstand behind Perth Town Hall, starting at 3:00 pm. The parade will get underway at 3:30 pm, passing through the Castle start line in the Tay Basin Party Zone. A maximum of only 50 dogs will be on parade, so CLICK HERE TO REGISTER without delay for a modest $15.00 fee to cover costs, with all proceeds goings to LAWS – Lanark Animal Welfare Society. There are no restrictions as to pedigree, but an extra point will be allocated to Scottish breeds. Really it’s about the creative use of tartan in preparing your dog for his or her big moment! There’s doggie swag for all well-behaved pets who trot demurely to the finish line with you still holding firmly to their leash – and awesome prizes for the top three dogs!

LIVE MUSIC

At the live music stage near the Perth Brewery table in the Crystal Palace basin area, the headline attraction will be Mudmen – self-professed Celtic Rock Warriors who promise to ramp up the excitement.
