Haute Dog Easter Parade

The Belmont Shore Haute Dog Easter Parade is a great family-friendly event. It's a wonderful way to celebrate Spring, and this year it falls on Easter Sunday, March 23, 2008 (so mark your calendars now & clear all your after-church activities.) Hundreds of dogs will join their humans in Long Beach as they parade about, dressed up in their Sunday Best (be prepared for a colorful onslaught of matching suits & fancy dresses, elaborate bonnets, furry bunny ears, and fuzzy chick costumes.) Each year participants get more creative...many even construct detailed flowery floats. Awards are given to competing pups, and (the best part!) entry fees are donated to local charities. This is a huge, huge event that gets national media coverage, and in addition to the actual parade, there will be lots of "dog stuff" vendors & rescue group booths located at the Livingston Park headquarters. Parade starts at 2:30 and the route travels on Second Street, between Roycroft and Argonne. Be sure to bring a camera (and your sense of humor...)
