The Manassas/Fairfax Dachshund Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Calling all Dachshunds!  This event is an annual Winter Parade.  Santa's Lake Ridge Parade [website]. The theme is  “Comic Book Christmas”.  Our Dachshund Meetup Group will be superheroes. Connie has designed a Superhero Dachshund logo that will be put onto capes with elastic collars made to fit each dachshund who attends. Therefore an accurate count is important so that each dog has a cape. Jeanette has made a banner with our group’s name and a matching logo to that on the dog's capes. 

    We are asking all people attending to please wear superhero colored shirts/apparel: red, yellow or blue.

    The parade route is less than a mile and is expected to take about 1 hour. If any of the dogs (or us!) need to be carried, pushed (strollers) or pulled (wagons) any part of that distance, come prepared. 

    The line up begins at 10 a.m. in the commuter Lot at the corner of Harbor Drive and Minnieville, Road in Woodbridge, VA.  The parade route is:  "north on Harbor Drive, turning into the Tackett’s Mill Center at the McDonalds, and circling down to the beautiful Lakeside for a meet and greet with Santa, plus an award ceremony" at 12:30 p.m.

    There is a fenced dog park with an area for small dogs separated from the large dogs within a 5 minute drive where we can go after the parade, if we wish, to let the dogs play and for us to visit.

    Brody and Lilly are sad to miss this, but their Momma is sick with a sore throat, headache - and being outside is probably not the best idea. 🙁
