Those who are unable to attend but still want to participate can purchase a ticket and submit photos virtually through Instagram or Facebook.
Judges will pick winning pets for Best Overall, Best Philly Jawn and Best Team Costume, which can be two pets or owner and pet. Winners in each category will receive a prize and trophy.
