Pet Policy – Visitors are requested to leave their pets at home during the Buchanan Community Carnival and Fourth of July Parade. The crowded events create an environment that is not conducive to our four legged friends. The safety of both you and your pet is important to us and we ask that all visitors adhere to this policy.
