PAL Pet Show

The Summit PAL and Department of Community Programs will be hosting the annual Pet Show on Saturday, May 18, 2019 on Summit’s Village Green, 356 Broad Street starting at 1PM. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be held on Sunday, May 19, 2019.

This year’s Pet Show will feature a Dog Show and Pet Exhibition. Check in and registration for both portions of the event will begin at 1:00 PM. The Pet Show will also feature a DJ and music throughout the event. Entry to the event is free for all animals. Spectators are also welcome.

The Dog Show, where small, medium and large dogs will have the opportunity to prove that they are best in show by taking a walk across the big stage with their owners, in front of our judging panel will begin at 1:30 PM. There will be a first, second and third place prize for each category.

The Pet Exhibition is open to all other animals, including reptiles, birds, cats, and others. The Exhibition judging will occur at the auxiliary stage beginning at 1:30 PM. There will be a first through fifth place prize for each of these categories.

At the conclusion of the Dog Show, there will be an announcement of the “Best in Show” from the large stage. All participants will receive a small prize courtesy of the PAL.

New for 2019 is the Digital Pet Show component - in the week's leading up to the tournament check out the DCP's Facebook and enter your pet into this new category with the winner to be announced at the parade.
