Every Thursday in October, you can win a share of $5,000 in free play in Margaritaville's $20,000 Paws in Paradise Slot Tournament!

Registration is each Thursday from 5-8pm, then get ready to play from 6-9pm! The winners will be announced at 10pm. Your buy in is just $10 and supports local animal rescue efforts.

Paws in Paradise will culminate with Margaritaville's 3rd annual adoption event Sunday, November 5, 2017 from 2-6pm in the Paradise Theater.

Last year, I was able to attend and there were booths, vendors and rescues from all over the Ark-La-Tex. I brought my latest adopted fur baby Cyrus with me to last year's event and he got tons of treats and even got micro-chipped thanks to one of the local veterinary practices. The true headline is that at last year's event, before the doors even opened, over $15,000 had been raised to aid local rescues. At the event itself, dozens of both cats and dogs were rescued and went to permanent homes and that makes this disc jockey a very happy girl! I'll see you again at this year's event with Cyrus in tow!
