Northtown Subaru Dog Days of Kenmore set for June 10

There are many festivals and events throughout Western New York for you and your family members each spring and summer, but what about the other important member - your family dog?


The Northtown Subaru Dog Days of Kenmore has the answer. This free event for canines and their people will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 10, at Mang Park along Mang Avenue, between Military Road and Wilber Avenue.


The event will includes more than 100 dog vendors, adoptable dogs, dog sports, demonstrations, six food trucks, treats for canines, live music by Skiffle Minstrels and more. Also at the event, attendees will be able to sign up for several competitions, including a dog-owner look-alike contest, coolest trick, best dog costume, best costume, and the Stephanie Mang Best Dog Joke Contest.


Special features will include the Memorial Chapel, where attendees may remember pets that have passed away, and the Blessing of the Animals.


Well-socialized, friendly, leashed dogs are welcome at the event, and water and shade will be provided.


“We encourage every dog lover in Western New York to come to this free, heartwarming event,” KVIS President Melissa Foster said. “If you have a dog or if you don't, you'll enjoy hours of fun and the opportunity to have a blast celebrating the deep and abiding bond between canines and humans.”
