- A Stand Up Paddleboarding semi-pro, Laura Nativo– Pet Lifestyle host of the Emmy-nominated series Home & Family— and her Pomeranian Preston will lead a pack of totally tubular tail-waggers in a pre-competition Paddle Paws Parade to mark the newest dog sport to hit the waves.
- Stoked to make a big splash with their sense of style, fashion forward Fidos will promenade in pet apparel in the Beach Bum Bikini Canine Costume Contest.
- Canine-loving little ones can play games, have their faces painted and create a souvenir of their day at the beach in the Kids’ Activity Area.
- Pet parents can mull over the Rover-related merchandise and surfing products on display at more than 70 interactive vendor booths.
