Cheap Date Edition 7: Reindog Prance

Hello and welcome once again to Cheap Date, where you can have a fun time without breaking the bank. December has kicked off, and it’s time to start celebrating the holidays! Today we’ll be talking about the Reindog Prance (formerly known as the Reindog Parade).

The Reindog Prance is a joyous occasion where pooches dress up in all sorts of holiday-themed costumes and compete for prizes! If you don’t have a canine companion, bring the family to watch the parade, as well as enjoy many other holiday- and Christmas-themed events. There will be cookie decorating, ornament crafting, pictures with Santa, Christmas movies, and stories with Mrs. Claus! Attendees can also win prizes in the hourly raffle.
