*This is exactly what it sounds like. The Ithaca Mutt Pararde started in 1932 in celebration for Be-Kind-to-Animals week. By 1936, it was in its 5th year with over 400 dogs participating. Other animals, like goats, rabbits, cats, & chickens participated as well, but only non-pedigreed dogs were eligible for the 33 prizes. 1st prize went to a white Shepherd Collie named Laddie (Elsie Austen, owner), while 2nd place went to an English Setter named Don (Jean Fetter, owner).
