Come see us at Murphy's Paw that evening. We are going to have a dog ice cream social. The dog ice cream is $1 a cup and the proceeds benefit Guide Dogs for the Blind. This is just one of the many activities we have planned for that evening. And of course, dogs are always welcome at Murphy's Paw!! :)

Please join us at the other unofficial "family area" on West Angela St. just off Main Street. The Garage Band Academy stage will be alive with performance by talented student rock and roll bands. Hope to see you there!!

This is lots of fun each year, even if you don't own a 4-legged critter.

Come to the south end of Main Street and watch all the dogs and their owners at 6 pm while they walk a few blocks up the street. Follow them to the Wayside Park where the dogs will compete in many different categories.

All the entry fees go to a group that raises the dogs for Guide Dogs up in San Rafael. A very good cause!

Be there Wednesday Night!
