Roller skating parrots, dancing dogs, and athletic pigs—bring it on! Think your furry friend is just as amazing? Parade them around at the first-ever Auburn Petapalooza, or enter them in one of the event’s contests. (“And the winner of the Best Pooch Smooch is . . . ”) Rescue a dog—or even a ferret—at one of the 69 vendor stands, or burn off some calories in the Dog Trot 3K race. Even if the love of your life is more of the snooze-on-the-couch type, there’s still hope. You can admire the Valentine’s Performing Pigs (featured on both the Letterman and Leno shows), or make like Paris Hilton and dress your Chihuahua in a matching pink sweater. That’s hot. Farm Park, 3030 R St. S.E., Auburn, 253-931-3043, Free. 10 a.m.–2 p.m. JOSHUA LYNCH
