This year's theme is, "The Emerald City: There's No Place Like Home." Our new theme is a celebration of our 20th Anniversary and 20 years of giving pugs, “no place like home.” Our Oz inspired theme will include a “hot air balloon” wagon ride around the venue, Professor Marvel's Paw Reading booth, a Pug of a Different Color tail painting booth, a fun "walk the yellow brick road" game for kids and adults, and all our other wonderful costume contests and puggie games. We should once again have over 500 pugs attending the event.
This event is the largest gathering of Pugs on the West Coast! You and your pugs are encouraged to wear costumes and dress imaginatively to represent our theme. There will lots of Dorothy’s, lions, scarecrows and maybe some flying monkeys and munchkins as well as other odd and wonderful things found in the Land of Oz!
The annual event also boasts a shopping boutique with Pug-friendly vendors from throughout San Diego County and Southern California. There will also be a raffle of more than 20 beautiful baskets with gifts and unique items anyone would love.
