This year’s Mardi Gras festivities have gone to the dogs.
A San Diego animal rescue group threw their own "Doggie Gras" festival Sunday, styled after the New Orleans festivities.
The event showcased dogs belonging to local families and others up for adoption that were dressed up in masks, feathers and beads as they strutted down "Borbone Street" and "Caton Rouge," located at the Rancho Santa Fe Farmer’s Market Sunday.
"We had face painting for kids and adults, Mardi Gras mask making sessions, all kinds of fun stuff," said Mindy Wright of the Helen Woodward Animal Center.
"At least one couple was heading right over [to our adoption center] right after," Wright explained to InsideEdition.com.
All proceeds from the event went toward animal programs at the Helen Woodward Animal Center.
