Hosted by Prevent a Litter (PALS), the 17th annual Pet Fest took place at the San Marcos Plaza Park in San Marcos on Oct.19.
The event was free and open to the public, but donations were also accepted. The organization (PALS) hosts the event every year in order to bring awareness of pet overpopulation and pet homelessness. The event included live music, pet blessings, food vendors and a pet costume contest. Pets who were ready to be adopted were also at the event for people to meet.
