Calling all dogs! Montelongo Pool will be hosting the K-9 SplashFest on Saturday, August 11, 2018, from 1:00-5:00 p.m. Sponsored by Parks and Recreation, this popular event allows people and their dogs to swim together in Montelongo Pool. Dogs can compete in three different contests: Swimsuit Competition, Retrieving Contest (from the side of pool or diving board), and 25-Yard Timed Race. Prizes will be awarded in each event. Dogs must be up-to-date on their rabies vaccination and have with them a 2018 rabies tag or certificate from a veterinarian. Dogs must be on leash, and aggressive dogs or dogs in heat are not allowed. Door prizes and concessions will be available. Thanks to all of our sponsors!
Admission fees for participants are $2.50 for adults and $2 for youth 17 or younger. Dogs get in free! Montelongo Pool is located inside Rogers Park at 3200 Bates Street. For more information, contact 775-2670.
