Visitors to San Diego Bay may be doing double-takes this Sunday as Hornblower’s 8th Annual Bow Wow Brunch Cruise sets sail with an “all paws on deck” crew of pampered pups. The highly anticipated annual event will live up to the “Wow” this weekend with a delicious brunch, Halloween-themed canine costume contest and a stunning ride around the boo-tiful San Diego Bay.
Each adult ticket purchase includes a FREE invitation to bring one furry canine family member to this howlingly good time, setting sail at noon on Sunday, October 9th, 2016.
Bow Wow Brunch Cruise human participants will enjoy a decadent, freshly prepared, seasonal buffet including free-flowing sparkling wine, mimosas and desserts. Fuzzy cruisers will delight in their own delectable doggie buffet, sponsored by Petco, with a variety of mouthwatering yummies and a take-home treat bag.
Canine-catered activities include a timely Halloween-themed doggie costume contest for a chance to win great prizes; expert pet handling skills and tips from a Petco dog specialist; and a chance to meet-and-greet Chopper the Biker Dog.
“There are so many reasons to love this event,” stated Helen Woodward Animal Center Vice President of Development Renee Resko. “Hornblower is really going the extra nautical-mile to bring people and animals together. You won’t find a happier group in San Diego this Sunday- there will be full bellies, full hearts, and wagging tails all around! ”
