Bastile Day is coming soon, and that means it's again time for the Santa Barbara French Festival and the famous Poodle Parade (Sunday at 6:15 p.m.). All kinds of poodles participate each year: we've seen pedigree world champions (a.k.a. “canine topiary”) to shaggy cockapoos. Sometimes Mademoiselle Pseudo-Poodle shows up (she's a great dane with big crêpe paper puffs).
All Registered Dogs and their owners are welcome to participate in the parade at no charge. This event is just for fun, so no prizes will be awarded. Costumed and decorated poodles are especially welcome, (and even the poodle wanna-bes can join in the fun)!
Sign up for the Poodle Parade any time in advance at the Festival or at the Information booth during the Festival. All well-behaved, licensed, vaccinated poodles are welcome. This is one of the Festival's most popular events. Be sure to invite your friends and bring your camera. To sign up just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
