The Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce hopes for good weather this Sunday — the new date for the twice-postponed Dog Festival.
Hundreds of dog owners (and their dogs) hope so too.
In just 3 years, the event has become one of the most popular on our town’s busy calendar.
On tap at Winslow Park (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.): agility and training demonstrations, goofy competitions (including best dressed, best kisser, best trick and the dog that looks most like its owner), food trucks, plus children’s activities like caricaturists and face painters.
Parking is available at the Westport Country Playhouse. The entrance fee is $10 per person, $25 for a family of 4.
Dogs are free.
Two days later — on Tuesday, June 26 (5:30 to 8:30 p.m.) — the Chamber kicks off its 2nd year of “Tuesdays @ the Train.”
Held at Luciano Park adjacent to the Saugatuck station, it’s a fun way to unwind after work. Stroll off the train (or meet your commuter spouse or friend), then stay for live music, food, beer and wine, and games for all ages.
It’s the first of 3 train Tuesday’s this summer. The others come every 3 weeks: July 17 and August 7.
The Chamber has created another great event. The first, second and third will all be charms.
