Enter your favorite pooch in the 2021 Fourth of July Mutt Show! All dogs are welcome to compete—no talent necessary, Please check the list of categories below.

The Mutt Show will begin in Manigault Park at 10 a.m.

You will need to register at the table in Manigault Park on the day of the event from 9 to 9:45 a.m.

Ribbons will be awarded for these canine categories: Best Dressed, "Grooviest" Doggie, Owner/Dog Look-Alike, Best Trick, and Judges' Choice. There will also be an award for Best Dog Joke. Entrants may register to compete in two categories.

The registration fee is $5 per category, and all proceeds will go to help fund the fireworks display. There is a suggested donation of $1 for audience members—those proceeds will go to help our furry friends at Animal Harbor and MARC.

We are looking for volunteers to help with set-up, registration and doggie line-up. If you are interested, please contact Sarah Butler at
