Doggie Spring Bonnet Contest and Parade in Carlsbad Village April 14th

Easter Fun at the Doggie Spring Bonnet Contest and Parade

Carlsbad Village April 14th

 

There’s some fun stuff happening in Carlsbad Village this month.

 

Next Saturday, April 20th and the day before Easter, you can enjoy the 3rd Annual Spring Shop Hop, from 11 am until 6 pm. Read more about this fun, free event where you can also win some great prizes from area business.

 

And EGGStravaganza, Carlsbad's biggest egg hunt, takes place in Poinsettia Park on the 20th, too!

 

But THIS weekend, if you are a dog lover, and have one, the Witch Creek Winery is hosting a fun event for both humans and dogs on Sunday the 14th.

 

The Doggie Spring Bonnet Contest and Parade takes place at the Witch Creek Winery at 2906 Carlsbad Boulevard (at the corner of Grand Avenue) from 2 until 5 pm.

 

Bassets and Doggie Spring Bonnet Contest

 

To participate, decorate a bonnet for yourself AND your pooch with all kinds of finery – flowers, fruit glitter, bows, whatever your heart desires. You and your fur friend will get to show off your Easter finery to judges during the parade for all to enjoy.

 

And judges will award special prizes for Most Unique, Most Spring-Like, Most Creative, and Best Pair.

 

Along with the Doggie Spring Bonnet Contest and Parade, you can enjoy some finger foods and wine tasting, and there will be special treats for the dogs, too!

 

The entry fee is $25, and the best part is the proceeds will benefit a San Diego-based spay-neuter organization, SNAP (Spay-Neuter Action Project, founded in 1990), that provides low cost spay and neuter services throughout the county to help reduce the number of homeless animals.

It should be great fun for humans and dogs alike, Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS . I won't be attending but it will be fun to see the photos afterwords.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Jeff I bet some of those dogs will be styling with there bonnets 

Posted by George Souto, Your Connecticut Mortgage Expert (George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages) 6 days ago

Good morning, Jeff... just my kind of event! If I lived there and had a dog, we'd both be out parading in our bonnets. I was just thinking the other day about how when I was growing up we always had new Easter outfits with a hat.... you don't see that much any more. Makes me miss the good old days sometimes.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage ) 6 days ago

Good morning Jeff - OMG that will certainly be a sight to see.  Maybe you could share a picture.

Posted by Grant Schneider, Your Coach Helping You Create Successful Outcomes (Performance Development Strategies) 6 days ago

Good morning Jeff. I like the sound of this and think it would be fun to watch.

Good morning Jeff. For me it would be fun to watch, but not participate. Enjoy the event!

Jeff Dowler, CRS We just might have to be there to see all the pups. Guess Mr. Camera will have to go with us! Thanks for the alert!

The doggies love Easter too, sounds like a lot of fun for them and those that attend this fun event.

This would be a delightful event. Although, I can say right now, there is no way Mac would wear a bonnet. ;)

George Souto  - yep I bet, and some humans, too! I look forward to the photos.

You're right Nina Hollander  I think it has gotten a little less formal. I know we always got new outfits for our 2 daughters, which they looked forward to til they got a little older.

Hi Grant Schneider 

Unfortunately I won't be able to go due to some other plans. But if I find photos I will share them.

It WOULD be great fun to see, Sheila Anderson . Sadly I am tied up with other obligations.

Hi Wayne Martin

I won't be able to go due to other plans, but it should be fun for those who are there with their doggies! Personally I have never dressed up a dog that we've had.
