White Rock West Beach     10am to 1pm

It was raining and windy on Sunday, and the Pooch Parade was still a big success with scores of dogs and owners out for a good time. The PARADE took off at 11a.m. led by the Crescent Beach Pipe and Drum Corps. At the end of the parade the musicians played while all enjoyed highland dancers.

There was a full line up of talented young people to entertain from start to finish. Among the performers were Alanna and Brianne, Ava Carich, Tyson Mac Namara, Lucas Cole,  and band Mullins and Itchy Neighbourhood.

There were three dog contests and the winners were: Rosie as smallest dog (runner up was Coco), Mutley as biggest dog (runner up was Maynard), and Tinkerbelle as best dressed dog (runner up was Rosie).

A BIG thank you to all the volunteers, vendors and participants of the 2013 Pooch Parade on the Peninsula.
