Pets looking to get out of the house for some free entertainment may want to head over to Pet-A-Palooza at Raymond James Stadium.

Instead of sitting by the door waiting for their master to come home, leashed and well-behaved pets are welcome to attend the free expo - along with their owners -  on Saturday, May 18.

The event takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

There will be lots for both pets and humans to do including pet contests – best trick, doggie/owner look-a-like contest, Mr. and Miss, hairiest dog and more. Dogs can enjoy the agility courses and splash pools or get their photos taken.

Kids can play in the children’s area with inflatable bounce houses and other activities.

Twiggy the Waterskiing Squirrel, Twig and Chili the Skateboarding Shelties and The Dock Dogs will be on hand to perform their special skills. 

There will also be opportunities to adopt pets onsite through local rescue groups.

Raymond James Stadium is located at 4201 N Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa.
