DogFest 2014: Pet Parade & Carnival | Duboce ParkDogFest 2014 is a mutt-tastic festival at one of the most dog-friendly parks in the city and the biggest dog event in San Francisco.

Watch doggies compete for Best Trick, Best Costume, Best Coat, Best Ears and more, with celebrity judge Top Chef Chris Cosentino along with emcee Daniel Handler, official representative of Lemony Snicket.
