Fido Scurry

13th Annual Fido Scurry
Saturday, September 7th, 2013
Fairview Park, Pavilion #1

5K or 1 mile, Run or Walk, with or without a pet participant. Everybody, 2 legged and 4 legged, is welcome to run, to walk, or just to come and watch and mingle. Fido Scurry jointly benefits homeless shelter animals and the Decatur Park District’s Fido Fields Dog Parks, but you don’t need to have a pet with you to enjoy the morning!

The event will begin with Yappy Hour, which includes a Pet Parade and costume contest at 8:40 am, with prizes for best costumes in several categories – most original, most feminine, most masculine, costume most fitting the theme, owner and pet costumed most alike. The theme for this year’s costume contest is ‘Above & Below the Sea’! So dress up your pet (and yourself too if you wish), in your favorite sports team apparel or just a sports related outfit! Pet and person costumes are not required, but are very welcomed and appreciated by everybody!
