Additional Information


2022 is the 20th annual Krewe of Barkus parade in historic downtown McKinney. After introducing the idea of annual themes in 2007, we have had a howling good time each year, celebrating pups in creative ways. This year, you can choose any of our prior themes and revisit your favorite! Movies, Music, History, Cultures, Cartoons—there's a theme for everyone who wants to have fun and impress the judges.

The 2022 theme: "Walk Down Memory Lane." Choose one of our previous themes and mark on the entry form which you will be dressing as. Check-in at 12:30pm, parade at 2pm. Questions about themes or costumes? Email Blynda at

Dog costume awards will be chosen for:
-Best in Show
-Most Creative
-Best Dog-Owner Combo
-Best Group
-Best Use of Theme
