Auburn’s award-winning Petpalooza – a festival for pets of all sizes and shapes – invaded Game Farm Park on Saturday for a day of celebration and entertainment.

The 11th annual festival included live entertainment, pony rides, pet contests, a petting zoo, an agility area, the FlyDogs and agility demonstrations, and more than 160 vendors offering a variety of low-cost pet services, adoptions, samples, information and a large selection of animal-related products.

The wildly popular All-Alaskan Racing Pigs performed.

Petpalooza is one of the largest festivals of its kind in the Pacific Northwest.
