Annual festival sees Lafayette go to the dogs

March 18, 2017 by  

The 4th annual Dogtown Downtown festival is taking place next month.

Presented by the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce and the Lafayette Library and Learning Center, the day will start off with a parade, which will travel from the Library, proceed down Golden Gate Way, and finish off at Lafayette Plaza. Spectators will get to see a wide variety of dogs and costumes.

Activities at the Plaza will include a showcase by the Lafayette Police canines and Canine Companions. Several rescue organizations will be on hand to bring awareness to the plight of homeless animals, and to provide on-site adoptions; these include ARF and the Contra Costa County Animal Services.

Visitors can also enter their dogs in various contests. There will be prizes for Best Team Tricks, Best Canine Contests, Best of Show, and ‘Stay’ the Longest. In addition, several vendors will be on hand to sell dog-related items such as food, toys, clothing, and accessories.

To spread word of this event in the Lafayette area, organizers will likely have investing in services such as flyer printing. Flyers can be inexpensively and easily distributed in the community.

The Dogtown Downtown festival will be held in Lafayette on April 29 from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon. Admission is free of charge. To find out more about the day’s events, contact Sara at 925-284-7404.
