The Town of Celebration Florida and Posh Pooches!

The town of Celebration , Florida,  is community in Osceola County United States, located near Walt Disney World Resort  ( Disney Florida). The community was master-planned and originally developed by The Walt Disney Company and the design is very pleasing and clean-cut. It is part of the Orlando–Kissimmee Metropolitan Statistical Area and has a population of around 10,000 people. If you’re staying in Florida and have some spare time away from the Disney Parks, it’s worth a look. We happened to visit on the day of the Posh Pooches parade in Celebration.

Posh Pooches in Celebration was yet another unexpected USA road trip joy.

The Town of Celebration Florida

We went for a drive to check out the town of Celebration, not far from Orlando Florida. The town was designed by Walt Disney as an idealised American town. Mr Disney did a great job, as you’d expect.


It’s postcard pretty, the houses reminded me very much of the immaculately kept examples we saw in Pennsylvania Charlotte and Charlston.

We spotted what looked like a market and so parked up to take a closer look. This was no ordinary market, this was a super special doggy market. We’d found posh pooches at the annual Posh Pooch Festival.

It was so much fun! Loads of gorgeous canines and their proud and friendly owners out strutting their stuff at a doggy themed get together.

There were cute dressed up posh pooches.


Some less cute but very clever posh pooches.


and amazing doggy accessories to buy for your posh pooches.


It’s often the things we don’t expect that are the most fun, don’t you think?

Rather like discovering our fossilised shark teeth at Myrtle beach, chocolate coated bacon and a sea monster at Darien.  What’s next I wonder?

Oh my! Archie would never submit to wearing an outfit, but attacking someone? That's right up his alley.

It's been a few days since you've posted about eating pork dipped in chocolate.....which I personally find to be repulsive :) but I was starting to see a theme. =))))
