Kris Allen, Ryan Star lead 'Pet-A-Palooza' at Coachman Park in Clearwater




It is impossible to satiate the public's desire for dog-friendly events in Tampa Bay. Every weekend, there's a pet parade, pub crawl, fashion show, costume contest or adopt-a-thon that draws dozens of pet owners out to play.

Next weekend, gear up for a pet-friendly rock concert.

Former American Idol winner Kris Allen, above, and pop-rock singer-songwriters Ryan Star and Matt Hires are coming to Coachman Park in Clearwater on March 13 for "Pet-A-Palooza," a pet-friendly adopt-a-thon and day of fun with more than 40 vendors, booths and more. The doors open at 11 a.m. (Let's hope they get everything cleaned up from Wild Splash the day before.) Tickets are available here or at the gate for $10, $1 of which will go to Animal Based Charities.

We think you should go and adopt a dog, and name it Adam Lambark.
