2022 is our 20th Krewe of Barkus parade in historic downtown McKinney. After introducing the idea of annual themes in 2007, we have had a howling good time each year, celebrating pups in creative ways. This year, you can choose any of our prior themes and revisit your favorite! 

Movies, Music, History, Cultures, Cartoons - there's a theme for everyone who wants to have fun and impress the judges.

Choose one of our previous themes and let us know on your entry form which you will be dressing as.
