The Austin Farmer’s Market at Republic Park in downtown Austin sponsored a Pet Parade with costumes encouraged. What is any kind of parade in Austin without “The King”, a Chow named Misery, posing as Elvis, gets to ride in a car because of his age. Elvis won the ‘Weirdest” award.

 Seemingly trying to hide his gorgeous pink Tutu, this manly dog named Angus, whose owner, Shannon Cooper, tried to put him in “the most embarrassing outfit since he’s a boy” waits for her to buy some fish from the San Miguel Seafood booth at the market.

 Jessica Doss, 1, walks hand-in-hand with her pair of Chows dressed as Scarlett, left, and Rhett Butler, right, from the classic movie “Gone With The Wind”.
