This daylong event celebrating our canine friends kicks off at 10 am. At 12:40 pm, the 80s Costume Parade participants line up and begin their march at 1 pm, led by Fife & Drum Corp. The parade coincides with the Canine Costume Competition. Costumed dogs and their people can win great prizes! (80s themed costumes are encouraged, but feel free to use your imagination, all costumes will qualify). Categories are Best 80s celebrities/band, Best 80s memorabilia, and Most Original. There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes in each category, as well as one overall winner. Be sure to be there to hoot and holler for your favorites! Winners will be announced at the end of the parade behind Vermont House (#86 on the map).
Other activities include dancing dogs, a Supernova Dog Works Championship disc dog competition, obedience testing, and demonstrations by police dogs and agility dogs. Wrap up the day with the DockDogs Big Air Finals at 5:30 pm.
