How The Contest Works

You need to enter online for a fee of $5 per entrant before January 20. You'll then be asked to submit up to three pictures of your pet that displays their fanciest side. You'll then have to answer some "paw-some"' questions to help the community vote for this years Canine King & Queen, and the winning Felines of the Festival.

Community Based Voting

From January 21-24 the community will vote for their favorite pet by donating $1 per vote. Funds raised through the voting process will go directly to the Humane Society of Douglas County.

One male and one female of both categories of dogs & cats will be named the winner. If your dog is named the winner it is expected for you and your dog to attend the coronation event. Cats are not expected to brave the cold, but their owners are more than welcome to attend the ceremony that takes place on Saturday, January 29 at 1:15pm at Barkers Island.

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
