BALLARAT is gearing up for the biggest event on the canine calendar.
The RSPCA Million Paws Walk will be held on Sunday, when hundreds of animal lovers and their four-legged friends will swarm Victoria Park to raise money for animals in need.
Registrations open at 9am on the Sturt Street side of Victoria Park and the walk starts at 10am.
