<sh>Chamber of Commerce

Reindog Parade

<bt>The Greater McLean Chamber of Commerce invites the dog community to the 11th annual Reindog Parade on Saturday, Dec. 1 at Langley Shopping Center in McLean. Registration is at 8 a.m. and the fee is two cans of dog or cat food, which will be donated to the Fairfax County Animal Shelter. Dogs and their owners traditionally parade in holiday attire for contest prizes and have a photo opportunity with Santa. Each year gets more creative as canines strut their stuff in snowflake, holiday tree, elf, reindeer, Santa, ornament and present package costumes. The dogs participating in the parade will be divided into three categories small, medium and large, for the purpose of judging for top prizes. There will also be a prize for best in show. Peggy Fox of WUSA Channel 9 will emcee the event. Numerous pet services, vendors and rescue organizations will attend and Moorenko's Ice Cream Café will provide canine ice cream for the dogs and Three Pigs will provide beverages for owners and observers. The shopping center is located in at 1362-1398 Chain Bridge Rd. For questions or event sponsorship opportunities, call the McLean Chamber of Commerce at 703-356-5424 or email info@mcleanchamber.org.
