The 13th Annual Bulldog Beauty Contest will take place this Sunday morning at Marine Stadium in the park at the north end. Over 500 dogs can compete in 19 different categories, most of which feature bulldogs, both English and French. Some categories will tailor specifically to other breeds, such as pugs, chihuahuas, and pit bulls. Other generic categories include cutest, ugliest, senior dogs, best in show, mutts, small dogs, and large dogs. Spectators can visit absolutely free, but for just $5, visitors may buy a seat along the runway to gain an up-close view as the dogs strut down the runway. For anyone wanting to enter their dog into the pageant, the organizers assess a $10 entry fee. The first contest begins at 9:45 am, and contests continue all the way to 3:00 pm. The main event, the English Bulldog pageant, begins at 10am, while French Bulldogs go on at noon. Various pet vendors will remain open to the public from 9:30 am until 3:00 pm. Some home breeders also bring their pups to sell to eager pet lovers!

For an event free to attend for the public, this makes for a nice Sunday morning getaway for you, your friends, and your family. If you do not currently have a pet, this event shows you the joys of having a furry companion in your life, and can pave the way towards having a pet of your own since this event has information about pet adoptions. In addition, some pet breeders may visit the event, so visitors can seek information from them as well. Come out to Long Beach this Sunday morning to see a bunch of cute pets for a feel-good time.
