A FUN FILLED DAY FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY, INCLUDING PETS, SPECIFICALLY DOGS, WHO STRUT THEIR STUNTS IN A 50 FOOT DOCK DOGS POOL.
Glasgow: I don’t know about the humans, but it sure was a fun filled day for the doggies. Glasgow Park, in Newark, held its first annual “Pets in the Park day” from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. Friday and Saturday.
Families not only from Delaware, but also nearby states like Maryland, brought the whole family – pets included; especially dogs that had a blast jumping off the “Dock Dogs” platform into a 50 foot pool. Competitions against other dogs included the furthest jump from the dock, speed, and fastest retrieval of an object at the other end of the pool. The competition went on most of the day Friday and Saturday with several finals throughout Saturday.
Vendors were on hand, including two food trucks and an ice cream truck from Hypoint Dairy, and I don’t stutter when I say this, but a Beer truck. That’s right, a beer truck. Aside from the beer, there was plenty of good food and drinks for everyone, and the doggies were not left out. Pet food and toy samples of all kinds were available from many of the vendors. There was also water feeding stations throughout the park to help the doggies stay cool.
New castle County Police were seen interacting with attendees and even had K9 units on hand and were giving demonstrations. Concord Pet NASCAR was also at the event.
Music and entertainment was provided by 93.7 WSTW and 94.7 WDSD and even included a chance to win $25,000.00. The event was provided by Concord Pets and sponsored by New Castle County, Mars Pet care, Hills, and Nature’s Valley. There were over twenty vendors set up for the weekend event which lasted from Friday morning until 4 P.M. Saturday.
There was also Brandywine Valley SPCA and Renee’s rescue with adoptable dogs, and low cost vaccinations from loving Touch Animal clinic and for the kids, two moon bounce tents and face paintings.
