A thousand and one dogs can't be wrong! We figure that at least that many dogs and their families will attend Dog Daze 2012, sponsored by Petland - and we think they're really going to enjoy the new venue. Yes, that's right - we'll be moving Dog Daze to Liza Jackson Park, where there's more room for canine-centered activities and more parking for their families.
So put the date on your calendar - that's Saturday, October 20, at Liza Jackson Park, from 9 am to 4 pm. We'll have the same great combination of fun games, contests, dog-centered vendors, weiner races and more.
Get yourself a team and go head to head with the Soccer Collies! Play a bit of Flyball with the Pensacola Furricanes team! And you and your dog can get physically fit (or at least be inspired by) at the agility events.
It's the biggest event on your dog's social calendar - so don't disappoint. All well-behaved dogs over 6 months are welcome - with proof of vaccinations. There's no charge for people to attend, but we do ask for a donation of $3 per pet - with the proceeds going to a suitable worthy cause.
Dog Daze is sponsored by the Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce, Fast Signs of Fort Walton Beach, Z96, 99Rock, and Coast 93.3 (Cumulus Broadcasting).
Vendor and sponsorship opportunities are available. Contact the Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce at 850.244.8191.
