The popular “Eggs ‘N Beggin’ PET-ACULAR” event returns to Rio Rancho on April 1 at Campus Park.

This is event is for the dogs.

The community is invited to bring their pet to the park from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for an Easter egg hunt and pictures with the Easter Bunny. Each pet should dress in their Easter best to participate in the pet parade and costume contest.

Registration for the egg hunt, costume contest and pet parade is $5 per pet (cash or check only).

Easter baskets filled with dog/cat goodies will be given to first, second and third places. All participants must have proof of vaccinations, pets must be wearing tags to register and all pets must be kept on a leash throughout the event.

There will also be an adopt-a-thon, with many animals from all over the state looking for a home. Vendors will be out selling their products. Food trucks will also be on site.
