The dog days of summer may traditionally signify the hottest period of the season, but in Roswell, it’s all about celebrating our beloved canine companions. The City of Roswell is set to host the “Doggy Daze of Summer”, a free outdoor event that promises a day of fun, frolic, and furry friends.
Taking place on September 9 at the scenic East Roswell Park, the event is a haven for dog lovers, pet parents, and of course, the stars of the show – the dogs!
A Day Tailored for Tails
From 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., attendees can expect a plethora of activities tailored for their four-legged friends:
- Interactive Activities: Whether your dog is a seasoned agility pro or just loves a good game of fetch, there’s something for every pup. The agility courses and Frisbee competitions are sure to be a hit, offering both fun and a bit of friendly competition.
- Pet Vendor Village: This is retail therapy, doggy-style. A curated selection of local vendors will be showcasing everything a dog (and their human) could desire. From artisan treats to the latest in dog fashion, it’s a shopping spree waiting to happen.
- Pet Adoption Drive: In partnership with Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, this segment of the event gives attendees the chance to provide a loving home to a furry friend in need. It’s not just about fun; it’s about making a difference.
- K9 Goose Meet & Greet: A local celebrity in his own right, K9 Goose from the Roswell Police Department will be present for a meet and greet. It’s a chance to see our brave service dogs up close and personal.
- Food Trucks: No event is complete without a gastronomic delight. A range of food trucks will cater to both humans and dogs, ensuring that everyone gets a bite of the action.
- DJ Entertainment: As the sun sets, the beats will get everyone, two-legged or four, grooving to the rhythm.
Calling All Dog-Centric Vendors
For those looking to showcase their dog-related products or services, the event is still open for vendor applications until September 4. It’s a golden opportunity to be part of a vibrant community of dog lovers.
While fun is the primary agenda, safety isn’t compromised. Attendees are reminded to keep their pets leashed and ensure they’re vaccinated. It’s all about ensuring everyone, human and canine, has a good time without any hitches.
