You do not want to miss this event. There are games to play and treats to eat! You can catch a ball or catch up with old friends and make new ones, because, let’s face it, most of you have never met another dog that wasn’t your immediate friend, right!
Bring your people (big & small) and your canine siblings, even if they’re not Goldens.
We would LOVE to see as many of our adopted Goldens and their families as possible!!
Stay tuned to our website for details as the date gets closer!

WHERE:  Town Center, Virginia Beach
Mark your calendars! Get digging in the attic to find your holiday finest! Round up those jingle bell collars! We’ve had a wonderful turnout the past few years, and know that everyone (humans and dogs) had an AMAZING experience. You won’t want to miss out on it this year!! It’s time again to show off our SEVA GRREAT Goldens at the Light up the Town Parade in Virginia Beach. We’re stepping off promptly at 6:00 PM from a NEW LOCATION: Bank Street, between Independence Blvd and Market Street, and the adjacent parking lot. Because of the new building being constructed at Town Center, the parade route has changed some. Our Goldens and their people should be there NO LATER than 5:15 pm. Parade participants are encouraged to park vehicles not participating in the parade in any of the free parking garages located around Town Center. Our Goldens are always a highlight of the parade. We can’t wait to see you there to spread some Christmas cheer and awareness for SEVA GRREAT. Be sure to check your email and our Facebook page for any last minute updates!!
