Out and About: Santa Barbara's Big Dog Parade

Out and About: Santa Barbara's Big Dog Parade

Of all the wild events offered across the country, I've always wanted to attend the Santa Barbara Dog Parade and Canine Festival! Held on the first weekend of June of each year, it's one of the largest dog parades in the country bringing animal lovers and families from all over the U.S. to southern California to show off their stuff. All the pictures make it look like a blast!

Proceeds from this annual event go towards the Big Dog Foundation, a non-profit that has helped raise millions of dollars for dog-friendly charities like search-and-rescue teams and animal sanctuaries. Lucky for us, Renees3 brought B-Bop and doggie BFF, Qi to this event earlier this month, adorably dressed as Mark Anthony and Cleopatra – and shared her pictures with us! Check them out, and let me know about any fun canine festivals in your area, too.

That's funny, even without seeing the pictures, I instantly knew B-Bop! I see Renees3 posts all the time on Sugar! :) & I think the boyfriend, Bella, & I are going to have to take a trip down to SB next year for the festivities!!

YAY! B-Bop and Qi are famous! I'd like to point out that they did get a Judges Choice Award! But we didn't get the grand prize trip to jamaica. Maybe next year!!
