The heart and soul of the 20th Annual Pooch Parade is the parade itself. Hundreds of dogs and their owners walk a mile up and down the Ventura Beach Promenade, surrounded by good friends and great music. It’s a wonderful way to show off your best friend to the world while supporting pups in need. Costumes encouraged!
To register to march in the parade, visit our secure Eventbrite page! Your entry fee earns you a spot in the march, and 100% goes to support the rescue dogs at Canine Adoption and Rescue League.
With your walk registration, you’ll receive
- Entry into all contests. Is your dog the best kisser? The best SITTER? Wearing the cutest costume? Only one way to find out!
- One drink ticket, good at the beer and wine area
- A $10 coupon for the Silent Auction. Go bid!
Want to take it a step further? Form a team! Your office, school club, non-profit, or crew of friends can join up to march as a unit. Collect pledges and make your money count for more by pooling it with friends! The team that raises the most funds will receive a very special (and very large) prize basket!
Registration is handled securely through Eventbrite, a third-party ticketing service provider.
