Runners, walkers, and revelers are gearing up as the Doggie Gras Parade and Puppy Love 5K join forces to culminate in the cutest display of athleticism this side of the Mississippi.

Participants are encouraged to register for the early morning 5K and the later-morning parade with all funds benefitting the orphan pets and programs at Helen Woodward Animal Center.

Team RWB is a group comprised of military veterans who work to connect with the community through physical and social activity.

 

Once through the finish line, runners and walkers will join attendees on BourBONE Street and wag into the Petco Foundation BARKetplace where the Doggie Gras celebration unfolds. Participants can enjoy authentic south Louisiana style food from Miramar-based, LouZiana Food Truck.

San Diego Comic Fest
Mar 7 – Mar 10 all-day
The San Diego Comic Fest is the friendly comic convention with a casual atmosphere and an intimate scale that allows fans to mingle directly with professionals and exhibitors. It’s the place where you can indulge your love of comics, science fiction, and films, and meet an outstanding array of professional creators without high-priced tickets, crowding, or long lines.

At the San Diego Comic Fest you’ll find an extensive and eclectic program with things for every fan to enjoy. As you would expect of a comic con, there will be panel discussions; guest programs; an artist alley; tabletop gaming; cosplay; steampunk; an exhibitor hall full of your favorite comics, books, toys, and collectibles; and much, much, more. All of this takes place in a relaxed setting that enables fans and professionals to hang out and enjoy good times talking about comics, science fiction, films, animation, and all the other things that fans love.

Comic Fest’s origin story: Back in 1969, when he was a teenage San Diego comics dealer, Mike Towry was part of the small group of fans who founded what became known as the San Diego Comic-Con. After the celebration of the 40th Comic-Con in 2009, he and other Comic-Con veterans agreed that San Diego needed a second convention, one reminiscent of the early Comic-Cons. Thus, San Diego Comic Fest was born in 2012. (Please note, though, that the San Diego Comic Fest is not affiliated with Comic-Con International.)

As a convention produced by fans for fans, San Diego Comic Fest is sure to please. This all-volunteer comic con is a gathering of the tribe where each fan in attendance plays an important role in creating a memorable experience shared by all. We hope that you will join us March 7-10, 2019 for a great, fun time at the seventh-annual San Diego Comic Fest!
