Featuring fifteen beloved pets of the children of Glenco IL, Pets on Parade managed to entertain the crowd during the last lazy days of August.
This was the third annual show sponsored by the Glenco Public Library.
Each child brought an animal and introduced the pet to their peers. Children's librarian Janet Hauser said the roster included medium-sized dogs, a bearded dragon, a gerbil and a quartet of hermit crabs. Children also learned a thing or two from their local animal control officer, who spoke on the subject of pet safety, maintenance and vaccinations.
