An interactive, fun festival for the entire family and for a great cause! Friendly dogs are welcome (must be leashed)! Come to Essex, throw a blanket down, listen to some tunes and hang out with us for the day! You can enjoy music by a favorite local band, Way To The River, shop the new fall SPR merchandise, participate in our cornhole tournament, play some lawn games just for fun or even just relax and have something to eat and drink amongst good company!
We will have a 50/50 and a 10+ raffles! Specifics on the raffles will be added to this page as we get closer to the event!
Kids’ activities include:
- Face painting
- Bubble play area
- Mini-pumpkin painting
- Symbolic adoptions to support SPR!
**The only adoptable animals at this event will be of the stuffed variety! Kids (and adults!) will be able to pick their own dog or cat from our adoption center, give them a name to put on their personalized adoption certificate and then take them home donning a special SPR bandana!
Fur-All will be on site for nail trims and Pawdicures for dogs!
We will have a station set up where your dogs can make their own paw print art to take home with you!
