CorgiCon Is What All Dog Lovers' Dreams Are Made Of (Photos)

by Gillian Fuller

Over the weekend, San Francisco's Ocean Beach played host to the second annual NorCal CorgiCon Fall Beach Day.

Aka, the best day ever.

Founded by San Francisco residents in 2014, the furry festival honors the humble corgi and raises money for animal rescue efforts, with proceeds going to West Coast organizations Corgi Aid and Muttville Senior Dog Rescue.

This weekend's main event was the Corgi Costume Contest, in which approximately 630 pups participated. Games, races and raffles rounded out Saturday's soirée.

The Bay Area bash comes but twice per year (summer and fall), but even if you can't make it out to Cali to party with corgis, you can still support the cause. Head to CorgiCon's website to stock up on merch, learn about the event's sponsors and donate to its partner shelters.

But before you do anything, check out the pics from CorgiCon's Costume Contest below — you can thank us later.

This fall's CorgiCon was held October 10 at San Francisco's Ocean Beach.

The puppy party drew in nearly 630 furry attendees and their human companions (up from 500 at the summer event).

Most of the pups participated in CorgiCon's pup-ular costume contest...

And showed off their Halloween best.

Some went for spooky...

While others embraced their inner goofballs.

The best-dressed dogs won paw-some prizes...

Including CorgiCon merch and gifts from the festival's sponsors.

Other events included raffles and games...

And, back by popular demand, the beloved Corgi Races.

The last CorgiCon raised more than $1,000 for local animal rescues...

And all proceeds from last weekend's CorgiCon will be donated to Corgi Aid and Muttville Senior Dog Rescue.
