FAN MEETUP RECAP: Pawsplay Pet Parade

Written By Lauralee Thompson (Fan Meetup Ambassador, Edmonton Chapter)

Last month, Edmonton had its first “pawsplay” pet parade!

What's "pawsplay” you might ask? Well, it's cosplay for your pet! Fans dressed up their favourite furry friends and walked them around the island in a socially distant parade route.

The event consisted of a 90-minute walk through Hawrelak park, with lots of breaks for photos, both from participants and from bystanders who saw us walking by.

Highlights included a dog and human pair in matching Ewok cosplay and a tiny taco dog, all strutting their stuff for a surprised audience of onlookers.

Spirits were high and there was already a lot of excitement for the next one!

While there’s not another Pawsplay Pet Parade on the books (yet! Stay tuned!), there are all kinds of incredible Fan Meetups (both virtual and in-person) going on in Edmonton.

Check them out here and I’ll see you at the next one:
