Santa Fe, New Mexico - Where Pets Rule!

There are moments when Santa Fe expresses itself beyond being the City Different. These outtakes from our traditional Pet Parade is one of the events. In fact, everyone seems to mark their calendars and start talking about Fiesta months ahead and as soon as the snow begins to melt.

Perhaps because the weather accelerated from 33 to 66 today, I began to think about walking the pup on the Plaza. Then I remembered... Desfile de los Ninos and our amazing Pet Parade. You see, Santa Feans love their Historic Plaza and given the opportunity parades will quickly become a tradition. The celebration of Fiesta is one of those amazing Kodak moments when it seems all Santa Feans come together with their pets and parade through the Plaza. 

In between the high school marching bands and the fire trucks, various versions of "pets" in the form of spiders, lizards, chickens, goats, rabbits, puppies, kittens, dogs and cats parade like one big happy family! There are no hisses, barking, growling or feathers flying, only lots of laughter in between applause. The parade just seems to happen like magic. It is an unrehearsed, unplanned, undirected event very anticipated by everyone. It is always worth being here and there on the day when pets rule.

The other 364 days are often equally as priceless if you happen to wander into the heartbeat of the city and sit on a Plaza bench and watch what happens next. This is what happens when a city now in her 400th year loves being different and where everyone is welcome!

Emily, I'm not a huge parade person but I could make an exception for a pet parade!
