Woof Fest at Mountwood
From staff reports
For more than a decade, Mountwood Park has been going to the dogs on a special Sunday each year.
This year, the 11th annual Woof Fest will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, presented by the Friends of Mountwood Park.
Woof Fest features activities, contests, demonstrations, dock dogs, vendors, raffles, giveaways and other activities for dogs and their two-footed friends. There will be a 1.5- mile fun run, a Blessing of the Animals, contests for look-alikes, tail wagging, costumes and pageants for pets and young girls.
There will also be a variety of vendors.
Proceeds benefit Mountwood Park and the dog park located there.
