VANDALIA — Last Friday the pets and pet owners of Vandalia-Butler gathered at the Vandalia Farmer’s Market to enjoy a night of furry friends and friendly competition.
The Farmer’s Market hosted pet night, in which attendees of the market were invited to bring their pets along, as well as compete in various competitions with them. The competitions included “owner lookalike” and “best costume.”

Vandalia Mayor Setzer competed in the Best Costume category with her two dogs E-jay and A-jay, dressed as bumblebees.
