PAWSFEST 2013 is just around the corner and we are excited to announce out plans for the day. We have packed a lot of interesting things for you to do with your family (including your dog) into this 3 & 1/2 hour event. You will want to stay with us for the entire time.

We encourage you to bring your dog, after all this is what Pawsfest is all about, but we do ask that you use good judgment by making sure your dog gets along well with other dogs and is well behaved. Please have them on a short leash (4'-6'), take them to the designated "Potty Area" and clean up behind them. We will have a common "Watering Hole" by the fountain on the Square. If your dog becomes problematic, please remove them from the Square or take them to the "Chill Out" area, we want to have a safe. fun, peaceful event. Please feel free to bring a lawn chair. We have 4 restaurants located on the Square and they will all be eager to accommodate you by having outdoor seating and servers who will take your order on the sidewalk.

EMCEE: We LOVE our Wendy from K.W. & Wendy in the Morning on The New Mix 96.9. We are thrilled to have her back to emcee Pawsfest, she is like family!

MUSIC: "Fairweather Friends" will be playing rock/alternative music throughout the event. You are going to love this newly organized band and will become big fans.

PET PAGEANT: This is a blast, plan to bring your dog and walk the runway, everyone is a winner and this is a crowd favorite! You can find the rules & registration forms here on this website, print them out and mail your registration and money to our P. O. Box or bring it with you and register at the event. Your registration for the pageant includes your entry in the Pet Parade, both for one price. Go glitz or go natural, your choice, but when you fill out the registration, be very creative with your description, this is what will be read out as you walk the runway, it should be @ 2-3 minutes long.

PET PARADE: Only $5.00 to walk your dog in the Pet Parade around the Square. If you enter the Pet Pageant, you are automatically entered in the Parade.

PET PORTRAITS: Stacy Amos Photography will be set up on the Square to photograph your dog while it is all dressed up & groomed. You can also have her photograph you and your pet together.

VENDORS: We will have vendors set up to promote their products, many are very cool pet oriented products and many are just very cool! We will also have vendors who will provide useful information to educate you and to inform you of services they provide. Most of the vendors will have drawings with great prizes so make sure you visit each and every one of them!
