CHICAGO -- The 6th annual Edgewater EdgeFest offered something new this year.

Edgefest celebrated everyone's favorite family members with a pet parade. The pet parade, along with pet contests, aimed to encourage the whole family to get involved in the Edgewater festivities.

Participants in the pet parade showed off their pets by entering them in one of four categories: best costume, best trick, smallest or biggest pet and a owner and pet look-alike contest.

The parade kicked off at 11 a.m. Saturday from the South Stage at Ardmore and Broadway.
