Are pets allowed into the event?

We have a dachshund derby so there will be a LOT of dachshunds there. So the answer to your question is an absolute yes! Our costume contest also has a doggie costume component, so if you're bringing a pooch you might consider dressing him or her in a silly costume. I think the doggie costume contest winner last year was a dachshund covered in a hot dog bun costome so it looked like a walking hot dog. You could enter the dog in the costume contest and, perhaps, win some money! We even get a lady who brings a donkey to the event - you don't often see a donkey in Oktoberfest garb. That being said, remember that this is an event with a lot of people and other dogs. I know my own dogs don't do well in large crowds. Also remember, most of the event is on public streets so I always urge pet owners to be mindful of how hot the blacktop gets since dogs tend not to wear shoes. So I hope this answers your questions - and I hope you choose to join us for Oktoberfest-Lakeport!
