Thousands crowded downtown streets last week for the Pleasanton Downtown Association's 1st Wednesday Street Party with more than 100 dogs and their owners marching in the popular annual Pooch Parade.
The weather cooperated with temperatures in the low 70s for the evening.
Dogs of various sizes and breeds filled Lions Wayside Community Park ahead of the street party with owners signing them up to participate in the parade and some registering for show and tricks competitions.
Some of the dogs were in costume, ranging from a poodle's pink tutu to fur collars. Some wore the green identification covers as dogs in training from the Guide Dogs for the Blind organization in San Rafael.
