The event combines a 5K, pet-friendly walk with a 5K run (the latter is “for humans only.”) Kicking off at Montrose Harbor, the event benefits homeless animals and lured around 3,000 participants—and 1,000 pups—this year. Attractions also includes splash pools for dogs, a “doggy buffet,” food trucks, and face painting. Next: Summer 2017
