Step Right Up, Come One, Come All: Circus-Themed Sunday Funday Brunch, Brings Big Top Fun To the Rooftop
February 3, 2023
The Third Annual Fur the Love Pet Fest will return to Fort Lauderdale Beach on Sunday, February 26th, 2023. Event organizers will take the much-anticipated annual event to new heights, literally, as the 2023 edition sets its sights within The LOOP District on the rooftop of the Las Olas Beach Garage. The celebration of Fort Lauderdale’s love for their furry companions is once again hosted by the dynamic mom and pup duo behind the award-winning Instagram @TourwithTeddy and blog "Living A Fairytail." Profits from the event will benefit upcoming pet-friendly experiences at The LOOP in 2023, including the popular free Dog Days of Summer Movie Series and December’s HOWLiday Party.
Coinciding with National Love Your Pet Day, FTL Pet Fest’s Circus theme brings the Big Top to the Rooftop for the ulti-mutt Sunday Funday experience, complete with scenic views, circus entertainers, local pet and people vendors, games and contests, and surprises at every turn. Guests are encouraged to dress in theme and stop by the PetWell Clinic station to pick up their nametag with their circus name.
No Sunday Funday circus brunch is complete without signature fare and Fur the Love Pet fest does not disappoint. Humans can indulge in classic circus bites catered by Circus Eats, craft their own cocktail at the make-your-own Bloody Mary and Mimosa stations hosted by Potions in Motion, and sip themselves bright-eyed at the Coffee Vibes Miami coffee bar.
