A parrot and a pig also appeared though they didn’t march. The first-place winner was Beary Potter (shown), played by Bear and accompanied by Cleandra and Zephyr Waldron, second place was Peanut in a clever coyote vest, accompanied by Michelle Sass and sharing third-place were Gretchen and Wetter. All the animals were well-behaved and seemed to have almost as much fun as the humans. Photo by Tom Kluzak LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
