Paws in the Park

That's right an event entirely for man's best friend featuring a wide variety of attractions for our canine buddies. It's not only a great event for dog owners and dog lovers, but also for both businesses that service the canine community such as breeders, trainers, groomers, vets, food, etc and those that just want to show their support for our animal friends. All Businesses are welcome to be a part of this unique event and may choose from booth space, display banners, doggie bags, business card ads and more to reach all those dog owners.
