I am guesstimating there was 2,000+ humans and their pets at today’s pet parade. Lot’s more than I expected. Judging by the huge turnout, this event is a big deal in Long Beach. Parking was tough but I found a spot three blocks away in the neighborhood. The weather was typical Southern California…. fabulous!
I snapped a few photos before the parade began.
And the parade starts! There was lots of tail wagging. I truly believe the dogs knew something special was happening. At the end of the event awards were given out for the best costumes. In my opinion, all the participants were winners, so I have no idea who won. Look at all the work that went into these costumes and floats!
Well, that’s the end of the parade…
Now for a big THANK YOU to the wonderful sponsors who helped make this parade possible… they gave out doggie treats to the contestants.
Total Pet Spa (they sell doggie wash you can use in between Fidos bath.)
Pet Sit Pros Pet Sitters
It’s a Doggie’s Life Handmade Dog Treats
A few rescue groups were there and brought along some furbabies looking for a furrever home:
Halloween is my favorite holiday and this year was the best. I hope you enjoyed the photos.
Be Well and Be Happy!
