Doggie Dive-In
Attention all dog owners! Get your swimsuits ready for you and your favorite four-legged friend and join us for the 9th Annual Doggie Dive-In!

Held 2 – 4 p.m., Saturday, September 17 at the Palm Island Family Aquatic Park, the annual event is open to all dogs and humans alike. While only the dogs will be allowed in the water, we encourage everyone to come out and soak up some rays and take in the sights of this unique event. Admission is $2.00 per dog. Humans are free.

Contests for the day include the best doggie bathing suit and the best dressed family (this one includes humans!). The event and prizes are sponsored by the city’s Community Services Department. There will also be vendors onsite selling merchandise and pet-related items and services.

For more information about this event, or to reserve a vendor space please call Jeff State at 520- 421-8677 ext. 4550. The Palm Island Family Aquatic Park is located at 1115 N. Brown Avenue inside of Carr McNatt Park. We hope to see you there!
