Come on out because this is your time to shine, and you don’t even need a pedicure or a frilly bow! This year we have planned a fairyTAIL themed festival that will include storybook themed contests. Show off your special talent, compete in a Frisbee contest, and dress as your favorite storybook character for our costume contest. It doesn’t matter if you are an adopted stray or a champion at Westminster, as long as you’re a dog you belong at Fido’s Festival USA®.
