Atlanta Botanical Garden Presents the Sixth Annual Reindog Parade

The holidays are officially upon us and the city of Atlanta has a host of activities to make your festive season just a little more fun. One of the cutest things about the holiday season is how your pets, specifically dogs, respond to all of the commotion. So what better way to get them in on the fun than to dress them up in adorable costumes, right? That's exactly what Atlanta Botanical Garden has in mind as they present the 6 th annual Reindog Parade. Don't let your pup miss out! Dogs in costume - what could be more adorable? Find out in person at the sixth annual Reindog Parade on Saturday, December 7 th - the only day of the year that four-legged pals are allowed to set paw in the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
