It’s fun, it’s vibrant, it’s sassy… it’s MARDI GRAS!!

It’s time to shake your rainbows, get your glitter on and go wild. And who says humans get to have all the fun? Pets want in on the action too!

The streets of Darlinghurst in 1978, where Mardi Gras started as a small protest for LGBTQI+ rights and over the years has developed into a parade that celebrates the LGBTQI+ community and the work that is being done within that community.

The annual Mardi Gras parade is arguably one of the most talked about (and fun) events that Sydney holds for the entire year/ever.

Pre-COVID, people would travel to Sydney from overseas and interstate just to bear witness to the rainbow-coloured floats, vibrant costumes, glamour and sparkles that would fill the streets of Darlinghurst.

But this year the annual Mardi Gras festivities are going to look a little different.

For the first time in its 43 years of running, the Mardi Gras parade is going to be a ticketed event that will be held on the Sydney Cricket Ground rather than on the streets.

But not to worry, the parade will still be all about celebrating love, equality, pride and diversity in the most stylish way possible! Which includes letting our furry mates have their go to.

The 2021 edition of the Mardi Gras parade commences this Saturday the 6th of March at 6pm in Sydney and to celebrate we decided to dig up some of our fave photos of past years’ pups and their sensational outfits!

How gorgeous do these fur babes look in their Mardi Gras costumes?!
