Dog March in Pacifica Coast's FogFest Parade (a Pacifica POOCH partnership)

Our friends at Pacifica POOCH have invited the Peninsula Dog Owners and their dogs to march with them in this year's FogFest Parade! A celebration of doggy pride, music and community support - how could we say no?

We'll be meeting at West Sharp Park at the corner of Brighton and Palmetto at 915am. We'll have coffee and morning yums for participating parade marchers.(Please be prompt! We don't want to leave anyone or any'dog' behind.)

The parade starts promptly at 10am and will take about 30 minutes to complete. We'll find out our marching order on the day of, but we'll be marching side by side with the Pacifica POOCH gang! Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed at the event other than as parade marchers, so once the parade has wrapped up, we'll have to pack up our furry friends and skee-daddle.

On a side-note, feel free to dress-up your dog! Crowds love seeing the dogs, but they especially love dogs in costume! (We're going back and forth between the Giants jersey or the blowfish costume for our dogs.)

Please ensure to have your dog's leash and poo bags with you. Also, please bring your dog if (only) they will be comfortable in a busy, potentially crowded scene as their will be heavy foot and paw traffic at the parade. Please visit our "About Us" for our doggy policies.

    We had a small group of PDO members, but we had a great time marching in the parade with our pups dressed up in tow.

    Hey there -- if the humans could wear a white tshirt, then we can all look like a group! If you'd like a POOCH tshirt (which the other POOCH members will be wearing) email or message me and I can give you one for a donation of $15. And if you don't have a costume, just put a bandana around your dog's neck. :) Thanks and see you there!!

    Hi folks! There are some super cute, dog costumes surfacing at Target and Old Navy right now! Get them while they're still available! (Totally perfect for the parade!)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
