This evening we took our trusty dog Hazel to our neighborhood park for the Summer's End Dog Fest.
Here's the scoop on the event from Film Action Oregon, the primary sponsor:
The goal of the first annual Summer's End Dog Fest is to bring together Portland's dog lovers and the residents of Hollywood, Grant Park, Laurelhurst and Irvington neighborhoods at a special event at Grant Park, famous for its statues of Beverly Cleary's Ramona and her dog, Ribsy. The purpose of this event is to build community, raise funds and awareness for Film Action Oregon / The Hollywood Theatre, and simply to have fun.
We had a good time and the twins, who ran into a couple of their new classmates, enjoyed watching the wiener dog races.
We'll look forward to attending again next year.
