Wagging tales and smiling faces were aplenty at Civic Square on Saturday for the annual Taking the Lead Pet Parade event.
The parade is part of the Tamar Valley Peace Festival and was put together by Studio Space Theatre Company: an all-abilities performance group.
Studio Space artistic director and parade coordinator Gerard Lane said it was a highly successful afternoon.
"It's a pet parade for peace that brings people together ... it's just such a fun event and people look forward to it," Mr Lane said.
In other news:
"We [Studio Space] thought of combining people with animals and the Peace Festival - animals bring people peace and so it's a bit of fun and it brings people together with costumes and colourful music, tunes and it's an inclusive event of all people of all ages and all abilities."
About 25 dogs and their owners took to the red carpet, or in this case a green carpet, to strut their stuff in colourful costumes.
"It's [the parade] something different. People can talk to pets in a way they can't talk to humans," Mr Lane said.
