The chance to parade your dog at the beach is coming this Sunday, May 28.

For the first time, the Okanagan Landing and District Community Association spring fundraiser is the Paddlewheel Pooch Parade.

Registrants choose a start time and get the opportunity to walk their dog to either Lakeshore Park (40 minute walk) or Kin Beach (one hour walk).

The event will take place from 1-4 p.m.

A $30 donation will have you and your pet in the parade, while it is free for spectators to attend. It is encouraged to dress up, as there will be costume prizes.

Reserve your place in the parade by noon on Saturday, May 27 as participation is limited.

All funds will go towards Paddlewheel Hall’s non-profit charity to operate and maintain the building for community events.

There will be free dog gifts and a raffle table with a chance to win great prizes, including two rounds of golf at The Rise, two rounds at Predator Ridge and more.

Stationhouse Museum will be open and a snack concession will be hosted in the park during the parade.
