Grab your corgi(s) and join us in the 2023 Downtown Bentonville Christmas Parade as a walking group!
Last year y’all showed up with a whopping 60 corgis and we are going for even more this year! Can we get 100 corgis?? Only one way to find out!!
Get your corgi Christmas outfits ready! Don’t think your corgi can walk very far? Decorate a wagon or a stroller with some Christmas decor and pull them with the group!
Have a corgi wannabe? They can join us too!
**2023 DOWNTOWN BENTONVILLE CHRISTMAS PARADE NWA CORGI WALKING INSTRUCTIONS**
Who can walk with our group in the parade?
Anyone with a corgi or a corgi “wannabe”! All corgis & friends are welcome 🙂
Our Parade Line-up location will be determined on the day of the event at check in. After our NWA Corgi group is checked in at the entrance we will be escorted to our spot in line (TBD).
*** Walton Blvd & 8th St. intersection will not be open. We recommend arriving from the South(14th) and traveling North on A St for arrival.
Prior to receiving our official parade spot location, we will meet as a group in the Fire Station Parking Lot at 8th and A St. You’ll find parking there as well! Look for one of our giant corgi cardboard cutout signs and our banner! Keep an eye on the Facebook page as well, we will make an announcement day of regarding our whereabouts.
Please plan to find our group no later than 5:30 PM; parking will get wild and this will allow you to work through any issues finding the group in advance. We usually start walking right at 6!
Distance walked is less than a mile! If you would like an easy getaway, park your car at the end of the parade route (over by Preacher’s Son) and walk over to our meetup location.
