NorCal CorgiCon 2017
In the past Saturday was full of fun in the sun at the bi-annual Norcal Corgi Con on Ocean Beach. Cooper and I were assisting Fuzzy with their booth at the marketplace while mingling with new and old friends. We didn't get a chance explore the event as much as we had hope. A whopping record number of 938 corgis frapped along the coast at this year's Summer 2017 edition of Corgi Con. 938!! Can you believe that?!
Corgi Con not only bring corgi lovers and corgis from near and far, they also host fun activities throughout the day with a costume contest, timed agility course, and signature corgi race. Cooper placed 2nd in the race, which makes him the 2nd fastest corgi in the West. We'll try our chance again at winning gold in the next one. Nonetheless, I'm definitely a proud mama!
Parking Tip: Arrive early for a guaranteed parking spot. If you arrive later, there are parking spots within Golden Gate Park. You can park in there and walk over to the beach if the beach parking lot is full.
One of the great things about Corgi Con is that they raise money for two rescue organizations, Queen's Best Stumpy Dog Rescue and CorgiAid. If you are interested in owning a corgi, definitely look into adopting first. The two organizations shown above are fantastic! If you are more interested in owning a corgi puppy, please check your local Corgi Club of America for a list of reputable breeders (make sure you do some serious research before making a decision).
All in all, this was another successful fun event hosted by the Corgi Con committee. Cooper and I have been going to every Corgi Con since moving to San Francisco, our first attendance was at the Fall 2015 edition. We look forward to attending the next one again real soon!
