The 1st Animal Festival will take place in Churriana de la Vega's Parque de la Paz on April 7. The event is open to all owners of pets in the municipality. They can bring their pet along to have fun with their friends, and also to coexist with other animals. It will be possible for pets to participate in several contests, where they will be the main characters.
All animals are welcome. However, the organization suggests that you avoid going with any animals that might be aggressive or have trouble interacting with all types of fauna. Two contests will be open to all pets. The first contest will be a contest for skills by species. Each animal can compete to demonstrate that they have both a lot of skill as well as a wide range of hidden skills. A beauty contest will also be held for calmest and most elegant pets.
The animal must have been registered before they can participate in these events. A species that has at least 10 registered animals will be given a place next to the activities and stands the City Council has prepared for the festival. Anyone interested in attending the festival with their pet may register them at the Youth Center.
Parrots and horses, dogs, horses, guinea-pigs, parrots and snakes, fish, horse, and many other animals are all welcome. This festival is perfect for pets who enjoy being around other people and are not afraid of noises or the presence of animals.
The Consistory stated that the Animal Festival would be an opportunity to "enjoy pets and make visible all their good qualities and how well their owners take care." It is expected that this day will raise awareness about the coexistence and respect that animal owners enjoy.
