It’s not the dog days of August. But predicted unsettled weather — including possible thunderstorms — has forced postponement of Westport’s Dog Festival.
Originally scheduled for this Sunday at Winslow Park, the new date is Sunday, May 27. The time is the same: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“It’s the prudent thing to do,” said Matthew Mandell, executive director of the sponsoring Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce.
“The weather has really been tough the last few weeks. Besides, dogs don’t like thunder.”
This is the 2nd time in 3 years that the festival date was moved. The 2016 debut was postponed — yet still a great success.
Now let’s hope the 3rd time is the charm for Memorial Day. The last 2 parades were canceled, due to weather.
