Saturday's Corgi Beach Day Will Have Costume And Best Butt Contests
The best day of each season upon us: Fall Corgi Beach Day is this Saturday.
The October heat wave might have left us already, but you'll find plenty of reasons to go frolic in the surf in Huntington Beach this Saturday. Probably a few hundred of them. Four times a year, SoCal Corgi Nation hosts a seasonal Corgi Beach Day, and the last two have seen staggering numbers. Over 600 corgis were at the event in April, and July's topped that with over 800.
Halloween is the reason for the season, so this Saturday there'll be a costume contest along with an all-new talent contest and the return of the best "momo" contest. "Momo," the Japanese word for peach, is what they're known as in Japan, since the rear-end of a corgi with a docked tail resembles the fruit. Juicy.
See you at the Huntington Dog Beach this Saturday at 10 a.m.! Check out Corgi Beach Day's Facebook event page for more information.
