Palm Beach does everything extravagantly - including its pets. The pets were on parade recently for the 27th Annual Pet Parade and Contest hosted on Worth Avenue. The event, faithfully managed by shop owner Sherry Frankel all these years, is courtesy of the Worth Avenue Association. The March 14 event saw many beloved family pets and their owners decked out in costumes as they pranced the catwalk in categories for small, medium and large pets. Spectators and their furry friends, many favoring St. Patty’s Day attire, turned out to cheer on the contestants. Here are all the ultimuttly purrfect pets who won along with their pawsome humans:
