Dog Fest At Winslow: Such A Fine Sight To See

Fairfield has its Dogwood Festival.

The trees are pretty, sure. But they just kind of sit there.

Westport’s Dog Festival, by contrast, fills Winslow Park with action.

Dogs of all shapes and sizes enjoy an obstacle course, competitions, treats from vendors, and chances to meet other dogs from all over the area.

Their owners — all of all shapes and sizes — have an equally good time.

Up to 4,000 people were predicted to attend the event, sponsored by the Westport Weston Chamber of  Commerce. Nearly every one seemed leashed to a dog.

There’s plenty of room for all. And plenty of time: It’s on until 4 p.m.

Bow wow!


Owners got a chance to show their dogs how to run the obstacle course. This guy took the offer literally.

Some of the dogs at today’s festival are stuffed.

One of the Festival exhibitors is a dog photographer.
