Animal Blessing parade

Hogsback Spring Festival

Please join us all at 10:00 am on Saturday for our annual St. Francis Day Animal Blessing Ceremony at The Happy Hogs Restaurant. This ceremony was started in 2008 by Rudi and Ollie. The animals will be gathering in the garden in front of “The Happy Hogs” Restaurant on the Main Road. Our Parish Priest, Reverend Margaret Fourie will be conducting this ceremony. In previous years she has blessed dogs and cows, cats, hamsters and even a tortoise. So please do not be shy to bring any animal dear to you.

Immediately following the brief service will be a cake sale in aid of the local Animal Welfare, and if past years are anything to go by, this will be a great time had by all. This is an invitation to ALL Pet owners to bring their animals for the annual blessing. Please carry your birds, cats, fish, rats and hamsters in appropriate cages.


Kind Regards, Monika Hof
