Reindog Parade and a walk at the Atlanta Botanical Garden

Atlanta Botanical Garden Reindog Parade Rocco Havanese

Last weekend we headed to the Reindog Parade at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. It's the one time a year dogs are allowed in the garden, and with all the pretty walking paths, it's an event we love attending each year.

This year we didn't compete in the parade but instead we watched from a prime viewing spot across the small pond from the main stage. Rocco rocks his holiday neckwear in the photo above!

Careful with those fingers so close to the yummy treats!
Before the parade, we visited the vendors. Rocco sniffed out the Lose a Finger treats right away. There's good reason they're called Lose a Finger! 

We saw lots of friends and their pups dressed in their holiday finery!

After the parade we took a long walk through the gardens.

You never know who'll you'll find on the bench next to you!

Rocco says, "can you tell which one is real?"

The garden also offers a wooded walking trail that weaves through the grounds. It was a beautiful day for parade and a walk!

For more fun photos from the parade, check out this story on, Atlanta's NPR station.  Don't miss the second photo in the slide show!

  6. Wow! I love the pictures of the frog and the big dog :) Looks like there were lots of neat things to see.

  7. I don't think we have a parade like that here in Toronto. I'll have to check- maybe because the weather is not always good at this time of year. It looks so fun. Love all the outfits and photos. The 3 elves are amazing and Rocco was rocking his neckwear- such a cutie.
