The picnic always runs from Noon until 5pm.  This year's picnic is Saturday, July 8th, rain or shine! It's July, and it may be very hot. Keep yourself and your weiner hydrated!

We generally mix and mingle for a few hours, then hold the costume contest, and finish with the raffles. Remember, you must be present to win a raffle prize.

 

We try to stick to the schedule as best we can, but it is always subject to change:

  • 12pm-3pm: Mix, Mingle, Sign in, Eat AND Shop!

  • 3pm-4pm: Costume Contest and Other Prizes

  • 4pm: Raffles (You MUST be present to win)

  • 5pm: End of Picnic! See You Next Year!

 

There will be hot dogs, chips, pop and other snacks provided at a small cost by Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue.

This is also a picnic, so please feel free to bring your own food and drink. We ask that you clean up and throw away any trash in the receptacles that are provided. This keeps the park clean and the doxies safe.

Several vendors will be set up in the park selling fun things for your dogs (and people too)!

There will be a balloon artist there for the kids, and it's free!

NEOD will hold basket raffles and a 50/50 raffle. Tickets will be sold for $1.00 per ticket or $5.00 for six tickets. 

We will be selling T-Shirts for $10 a piece. When they are sold out, they are gone! The design and color of the shirt is always a surprise, and as with every year, this year will be great, you're going to love them! So get there early and be sure to grab a shirt to add to your collection or start a new one!

Some vendors are able to process credit cards.  NEOD can only accept cash or checks, so If you plan to buy things, play it safe and bring some cash.

Information on some of the vendors is posted under our "Vendors" tab.

The costume contest is free, and open to anyone.  Prizes will be given for best female, best male, best group (2 or more doxies) and the Grand Champion!  The contest is held on the basektball court. We ask all costume doxies to surround the court, but stay on the grass.  That way we can view everyone, and people who want to take photos for themselves can also do that.

The only cost we ask is a donation of $1 per dog.  This helps us cover our own costs for park, set up, supplies, and insurance.  There is no set registration, but we do have a sign-in sheet.  We want to get an idea of how many people and dogs are there.  Feel free to make your way over to the sign-in area, pay your dollar-a-dog donation, and sign in at your own convenience.  Many people like to get set up first, so please get settled, then come over, bring your weiner and say hello!

This is the basic set up for the main area.  The road circles the park.  You can park your cars at the main entrance, or anywhere around the road.  Just don't block the road.  Then spread out a blanket, dog pen, or anything you like anywhere in the park.  The sign-in area is next to the main pavilion. The T-shirt sales and raffles will be held under the main pavilion.  Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue will sell food and drinks in front of the pavilion.  Costume contests will be held on the basketball courts.
