Hundreds of owners dressed their pooches in elaborate costumes and marched down Woodland Boulevard for this year's Mardi Gras on Mainstreet dog parade. The parade, sponsored by the Krewe of Amalee, took place March 2.

The parade's theme was Super Hero Pups, and awards were given out to several lucky dogs and their owners for best costume in several categories.
