On Sunday, December 10th, Village Faire at 300 Carlsbad Village Drive, was gearing up for a really fun event. People were wandering through the plaza, but not to shop. They brought their furry faithful friends with them on this visit. Pets on Parade is an annual gathering so dog owners can let their pets enjoy some fun time meeting their furry buddies and taking pictures with Santa, for a fee.
The raffle prize winners were patiently waiting for their numbers to be called and others were taking their pets to have pictures taken with Santa. 100% of the proceeds for the event benefits Wagging Dog Rescue, run by Cassandra Nuttman. www.waggingdog.org.

Several vendors were there, including Merry Jane & Thor, Salty Dog Boutique & Groomery, the honest kitchen, Sama Dog, Wesco Pet, Las Villas De Carlsbad and Carlsbad Cookie Company. Santa was Sponsored by the Glass and Mirror Shoppe.
After the raffles were over everyone gathered at the Christmas Tree at the entrance to Village Faire. It was a very large crowd and a really interesting time helping all of people and their pets together for the group photo. The furry ones do not always cooperate but the final photo was worth it all.
Enjoy the photos and bring your friends, human and four legged, and we will see you all next year!
