Join Us for the Pet Parade and Pet Blessing

Ring in the fall season with us at the 12th annual Palos Heights Pet Parade, and the Blessing of the Pets on Saturday, October 7th, 2017! The parade will take place at Pasarelli Park on 124th and Oak Park Avenue, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be raffles, prizes, a cat/dog food collection drive and T-shirts for sale, with all proceeds going to local animal shelters.

The Blessing of the Pets will be taking place at 2 p.m. at a new location, St. Alexander Church, at 7025 W. 126th St. in Palos Heights. The Blessing of the Pets/Animals is a Franciscan tradition performed to honor the unconditional love and companionship of our pets, and to recognize the legacy of St. Francis of Assisi. We hope to see you and your pet for this special event!

We would like to thank Nielsen Party Rentals for their generosity.
