I defy you to resist the cuteness. The morning of June 22, before Pops in the Park takes over, McKinley Park is the setting for the 5th Annual Pups in the Park dog walk and costume contest. From 9am to 12 noon at Shepard Garden and Arts Center (35th & McKinley), bring your own pup (and/or other human friends) and enjoy the 1K dog walk/parade, contests, raffle prizes and goodies from local vendors, as well as meet other dogs available for adoption from area rescue groups.
Admission is free, but if you want to enter your doggie in the costume contest and/or join the dog walk, the entry fee is $20. Proceeds from the event benefit Friends of East Sacramento, the Youth Development Network and Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary.
