Reindog Parade

Join the once-a-year fun of dogs in the Garden. Dress your pooch in holiday finery to compete for prizes with celebrity judges or to just show off. Enjoy Pup Tent refreshments, Photos with Saint Nick, and connect with local canine enthusiasts and businesses in the Doggie Expo. The first 100 pre-registered participants to arrive receive a special Wag-Bag of gifts.

Don't have a dog? Come enjoy the show!

Dogs compete in the following categories:
Best Adult
Best Puppy
Best Botanical
Best Dog Pack
Best Dog-Owner Dress-a-Like
Not competing – just showing off!
