Dog Ordinance - For the public’s safety, Chapter 14 of the City of Paducah Code of Ordinances lists requirements to bring a dog to a special community event such as a parade or festival.  The dog must be licensed by McCracken County Animal Control or by any other state or county and restrained by a leash or lead that is no longer than three feet.

The Western Kentucky Labor Day Committee cancelled the 2021 and 2020 Labor Day parades due to COVID concerns.
