Pack up your pooch and head over to Fairfield Hills on Saturday, May 18, for to Newtown’s 4th annual Strutt Your Mutt.
This fun and healthy family event sponsored by the Friends of Newtown Park and Bark and Newtown Parks & Recreation will take place from 11 am until 3 pm, on Simpson Street (near the municipal center). Dogs must be leashed at all times.
Registration for the walk begins at 10:30 am. Registration fee is $5 per dog, cash only. Proceeds will go toward the construction of Newtown’s off-leash dog park, scheduled to open late fall 2013.
After the walk, all guests will be encouraged to visit with vendors and refuel with food from Fusion 25 and Tacos & Antojitos Mexicanos. Entertainment will be provided by the 99 Dollar DJ, John Voket.
Ask The Vet, new this year, will be on hand to answer all your canine questions. Contests, a canine agility course, demonstrations, nail clipping and a grand prize raffle round out the day’s activities.
