Come join us May 3rd for a celebration of the end of school and the beginning of the summer season as 2:40 Productions and Groove MQT unite for the ultimate fundraiser to benefit UPAWS. The event kicks off at 12:00 with door prizes, raffles, and UPAWS bringing in some cuddly critters that are up for adoption! The event will keep on rolling with our first ever U.P. Pet Pageant with music provided by Lake Effect Entertainment. At the conclusion of the UPAWS Adoption Expo and U.P. Pet Pageant we will begin to serve food provided by Sherries Restaurant of Ishpeming. But the fun doesn’t stop there as Groove MQT throws one of the biggest parties of the year with the Downtown Meltdown starting at 10 pm.
Bring your friends and family and enjoy a fun filled day of games, prizes, contests, raffles, and much, much more!

U.P. Pet Pageant Rules and Procedures
There will be 3 winners in the 1st Annual U.P. Pet Pageant
1st Ever U.P. Pet Pageant Champion
This is an informal pageant and any animal is allowed to enter into the pageant. Just show up at the Party for the Pets 2 @ The Masonic Building with your pets where we will have a registration table setup to register your pet into the pageant.
Each contestant will have at least 1 opportunity to “strut” their stuff. Our MC for the event will read any descriptions that you provide us and an opportunity for your animal to perform any tricks.
After each animal has had a chance to walk, our judges will narrow down the winners into each of the above listed categories, where they will have an opportunity to compete.
Rounds will continue until the field has been narrowed down to a final winner.
1st Place – 19” LCD Flatscreen
2nd Place – $50 Cash
3rd Place – PetSmart Giftcard ($19.36)
As you can all understand that when you get a group of animals into one room it has the potential for turning a little chaotic. Anyone that enters an animal into the pageant is solely responsible for their animal and any damages that may occur to the property or other people and their pets. All we ask is that everyone is a responsible pet owner and have their pets on a leash and/or harness at all times. If everyone does their part we can make this one of the memorable events UPAWS has ever seen! Thank you so much for cooperation and I am excited to see what everyone comes up with!
