Wags Sure to Follow Doggy Walk Festivities

It will be a dog day afternoon Sunday, when pet lovers gather to dedicate the Doggy Walk of Fame near the dog park on Edwards Street.

The walkway consists of more than 800 concrete squares that commemorate prized pets of residents all over the city.

The celebration will include a police K-9 demonstration, face-painting and other activities for children.

Dogs decked out in creative costumes will parade and vie for prizes. Dog owners can register for the event until 3 p.m. at the park.


A canine good-citizen award will be hung around the neck of the best Samaritan.

The free event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the ribbon-cutting for the Walk of Fame set for 1 p.m. The park is on Edwards at Talbert Avenue.
