Calling all San Carlos residents that bark, meow or maybe even slither. It’s time for the San Carlos Hometown Days Pet Parade which drew more than 100 animal companions last year and is expected to draw at least as many if not more this Sunday, May 18 at 11:30 a.m. Distinguished judges Mayor Mark Olbert, Hometown Days theme contest winner Keira Swei and Diana Ungersma, owner of Smilin’ Dogs, will pick winners in categories for large, medium and small dogs and “exotic animals” (past entrants included goldfish and even a pony) and crown the king and queen pets of San Carlos — an honor that means riding in a car in next year’s parade. Other highlights include a canine agility course and a pet “aid station” with water and treats. Entry is free. To participate, people should come to Madsen Field with their pets at 11 a.m. to register. The parade begins at 11:30 a.m. and prizes will be awarded at 12:30 p.m.
