If you weren't at Corgi Beach Day, you missed some serious cuteness

The first few weeks of spring bring with them warmer temperatures, the first flower blooms and, most importantly, the annual Corgi Beach Day. If you've never heard of it, you're about to have your mind blown. It's the one day of the year when hundreds of Corgis are given free reign to frolic together on a beach in Southern California, aka the best day ever.

On Saturday, April 11, this blessed event took place in Huntington Beach, California, and adorable Corgis came from all over (with their owners) to participate. This was Corgi Beach Day's ninth consecutive year, and it just continues to get more popular (duh). The number of Corgis in attendance shot up from 300 the previous year to a whopping 500 this year. That's quite a bit of furriness for one beach to handle!

The dogs had the whole afternoon to play, dig, splash, swim and catch some rays, while their owners, no doubt, took thousands of pictures. Even some famous Corgis showed up to hang out with their fans. Instagram stars Dale Corgi and Luna Snookums were in attendance, and appeared in costume, along with many, many others. Of course the event trended on Twitter under #SoCalCorgiBeachDay, and the Instagram shots are just too adorable for words. So I'll stop using them and get right to the pictures!
