A pet walk is planned for Main Street Delaware's Sept. 6 First Friday celebration.

New this year, Main Street's Facebook friends will vote on awards for participating pets, and the "fan favorite" will be invited to ride in the Nov. 24 holiday parade as the event's official four-footed marshal.

The walk will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets, available at the Main Street Delaware office at 20 E. Winter St., are $10 and entitle the holders to special "doggie bags" and a map listing downtown merchants who are offering pet treats.

The animals also will be photographed and their pictures posted on the Main Street Delaware's Facebook page, facebook.com/MainStreetDelaware, where they will compete for prizes.

Tickets are available now at mainstreetdelaware.com. Only 100 pets will be issued tickets.

All pets must be leashed and must have tickets to receive treats. Also on hand on Sept. 6 will be pet-related booths and information on animal care.
