Photos: 634 Cute Corgis Attended Corgi Beach Day

Saturday marked the biggest Corgi Beach Day yet, with at least 634 corgis showing up to take part in the festivities.

We stopped by the Huntington Dog Beach on Saturday to see the cuteness for ourselves and were not disappointed. There were corgis in costume: Pippin from Lord of the Rings, a shark and a princess. We also saw Instagram celebrity Winston the White Corgi and a corgi that knew how to surf. There were so many corgis that we became overwhelmed with cute aggression and had to run into the surf to calm ourselves down.

The SoCal Corgi Beach Day group meets up quarterly. Their event began in 2012 with only 15 corgis, so they've really grown over the last few years. Event organizers had attendees sign their dogs in to get an official count, which far exceeded their earlier expectations of at least 500 corgi guests. Events of the day included a corgi limbo contest and a group photo, where our photographer noted that each human held up their dog like Rafiki holding up a baby Simba. Soon, corgis, all of Huntington Dog Beach will be yours.
