Santa will be ready to visit with your furry friends on Saturday, December 15, 2012, at Parc Hardy in Breaux Bridge, from 12 noon - 5 PM. The St. Martin Parish Animal Shelter is planning a chili cook-off, pictures with Santa, discounted micro-chipping, a dog pageant, and a hayride. They will also have adoptable pets available from several rescue groups and the afternoon is not just for pets- there will also be vendors available so you can finish your Christmas shopping.
