If you haven't heard the news yet, then you'll be saddened to know that there will be no dog parade in Lafayette this year.

The 2018 Krewe Des Chiens parade has been cancelled, according to a December 30 post on the Krewe's Facebook page.

We’re sad to announce that we won’t be able to host our annual dog parade this year. It’s our hope to see the parade continue in the future. Thank you for continuing to follow us and for your support through the years.

As you can imagine, a lot of people are extremely disappointed that there will not be a dog parade this year.

Now as to the reason the parade is not happening, that was a bit unclear until Kristin Plauche with longtime supporters Lafayette Veterinary Care Center posted the following to clear things up.


Something tells us that there are just too many dog lovers in Acadiana for this fun event not to return. We'll keep you posted.
