2021 Costume Contest 

Due to the Delta Variant, we will not hold a live costume contest, because it places too many people into a small area.  We do plan to go forward with the corgi meet-up and parade.  We apologize for this change, but it seems to be the most responsible path.

INSTEAD OF THE LIVE COSTUME CONTEST, please post your submission on Instagram.   #tourdecorgi2021

We will award 10 prize packages, and of course share the winners.  Prizes will be awarded based on originality, work effort/quality, and the number of Instagram likes.

Any costume may participate, but at least 2 prize packages will be awarded to our western theme:  “BACK IN THE SADDLE”

REMEMBER!  #tourdecorgi2021
