Corgi Caroling thru Balboa Park!!! Here We Come A-wassailing among the leaves so green; Here we come a-wandering, so fair to be seen... No caroling required... the pups will do the howling for us. We'll meet at Nate’s Point at 4:15pm (1/2 before sunset) for a little pre-caroling romp to work our wiggles out and decorate our corgis with bells & glow necklaces. At sunset (4:46pm), we'll leash-up for a corgi parade across the Laurel Street Bridge to the Bea Evenson Fountain. On the way back, we'll pass the Lilly Pond and finish at Lady Carolyn's Pub at The Old Globe (http://www.balboapark.org/in-the-park/lady-carolyns-pub). I’ve checked and the Pub will be open and waiting for us with pup friendly outdoor seating and dessert items including warm apple bread pudding, hot chocolate, cappuccino, and even irish coffee. Perfect treats to warm-up every corgi owner, both inside and out. BRING: your decorated dogs ready for caroling! Holiday attire, sweaters, collars, or colorful scarfs are suggested, but not necessary. Some corgis prefer not wearing clothes, and that's ok too. We'll provide bells and glow necklaces as my gift to you. I'll also have blue glow sticks for those celebrating Hanukkah. Light up your pups even brighter with your own, additional light sticks, necklaces/bracelets or other corgi lights. I recommend battery operated LED's because they shine brightly without getting hot (you can attach the battery pack to a harness with duct tape). OPTIONAL (But a lot of fun!): Join in on THE HOLIDAY PILE by BRINGing a small unwrapped toy or treat. Once at the fountain, we'll throw all the toys & treats in a holiday pile. Then we’ll let our corgis nose around, one at a time, to pick one to take home. HELP NEEDED: It's time again to request small contributions from our members to help offset the costs of having this Meetup. I really do need your help. The truth is that I pay bi-annual dues to Meetup and an occasional permit fee for Meetup locations. I could pass those expenses on to you by charging an annual membership fee or a special event fee or a fee for incidentals like the bells and glow necklaces for this Meetup, or the Howl-O-Ween contest. That’s too many fees! Fees ruin the fun and discourage people from attending. We have 40-60 people who participate every month (plus a bunch of other members too). If everyone at this Meetup contributed $5 per corgi, that would cover everything and I would not need to ask again for a year. So far this approach has come close. I’m asking for just $5 per pup for the year. PLEASE keep the fun going by dropping your $5 into the MONEY JAR. I'll have it with me at the dog park, at the gate where we exit the park on leash, and at the pub. Thank you. DIRECTIONS: Nate's Point is located on the West Mesa of Balboa Park, immediately south of El Prado / Laurel Street and east of Balboa Drive. SEE MAP: From the North: take 163 S toward downtown.

Q: The corgis do a fine job of caroling on their own, but if anyone knows of a musician or two that might want to join the procession, please let me know. Rain will cancel this event. Light up the night as part of an unforgettable procession of jingling, glowing corgis as we meander thru Balboa Park.
Take a break from cooking and enjoy some delicious food from Rubios! 30% of sales will go to the San Diego Humane Society via Team Low Rider. Just print the flyer and present it when you order, or show it on your phone.
Let's kick off 2020 with the lowriders and walk around Oceanside harbor! We'll meet at the public lot near the Jolly Roger and walk a mile to the coffee shop at the other side of the harbor. From there, return at your own pace. Either linger over coffee, grab lunch at a harborside restaurant, or just u-turn and return to your car. The harbor visitors love seeing our parade of wigglebutts (the dogs', not ours!) as we parade along the water.
Come join us for a fun walk to benefit the San Diego Humane Society! There will be vendors, entertainment and freebies. We'll have a few fundraising events leading up to the walk, and of course please ask your family and friends to donate to your page.
