A Parade to Honor Dogs

  • September 20, 2015
  • 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
  • E. Del Ray Ave & Commonwealth Ave Pocket Park

On Sunday, September 20 at 3 p.m., we’re honoring a tradition observed in Nepal called Kukur Tihar, or Kukur Puja (worship of the dogs). Just as they do in Nepal once a year, we’ll dress our dogs in marigold garlands, decorate their foreheads with colored powder (tika) and give them delicious treats. In Nepal, families perform these rituals at home, but here we will gather together and take our dogs on a parade through the neighborhood. We’ll start at the Del Ray Pocket Park on the corner of E. Del Ray and Commonwealth where we’ll decorate the dogs. Then, we’ll walk together through town to the Simpson Dog Park.
