Wellington is hosting its take on the popular New Orleans Mardi Gras Saturday, which will be combined with four-legged friends.
The second annual Mardi Paws in the Park will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at the Wellington Dog Park on Greenbriar Boulevard.
There will be a costume contest for the dogs and games for
both canines and children. All proceeds from the event will go to the Shepherd Help and Rescue Effort, based in Coral Springs.
