Year #3… I have reserved the Riverside Park Band Shell and adjacent (fenced in) ball field along the Grand River in beautiful Grand Rapids, Michigan for Corgis in the Park 2017! Bring your corgi in costume on Saturday, October 28th at 10:00 a.m. for a few hours of silliness as we look to benefit Paws with a Cause. You don’t have to own a corgi to attend. Although we love all dogs…this day is meant to be a “Corgi only” event. We want you to reserve your corgi…now! Last year we had nearly (300) corgis that attended. If you’re bringing a corgi, please upload a photo and name of the dog that will be attending.
