The Rancho Bernardo Spirit of the Fourth Committee is hosting its inaugural Poodles on Parade event on Saturday, May 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Webb Park. Those with standard poodles can register their dogs to participate in the parade and contests including best hairdo, best trick, and best costume. People with any breed of dog, however, are welcome to attend and enjoy watching the parade, demonstrations, over 30 exhibits, food trucks, raffles, and more. There will be other pre- and post-event festivities throughout the weekend as well.

Spirit of the Fourth has organized RB’s popular Fourth of July celebration for the past 48 years, holding various events throughout the year to help raise funds to support the committee. Past fundraising events include RB Idol, Golden Idol, and miniature golf, among others. To learn more about Poodles on Parade visit www.spiritofthefourth.org/poodlesonparade.html.
