This weekend: Freret St Festival & Dog Day Afternoon

It's that time of the year in New Orleans, festival time! For the next two months the weekends will be crammed full of fun things to do before summer gets here.

Saturday it's the annual Freret Street Festival. There will be over 200 local vendors selling arts, crafts, flea market items and delicious food. There will also be four stages of live, local music. In the pet area, Petit Pet Care will be there sponsoring the Doggie Pit Stop with water and treats for your pooch along with the rescue organizations who will have dogs for adoption. There's no admissions fee so come spend a few hours and stop by and say hi!

Sunday is Dog Day Afternoon a fundraiser for the LASPCA. 11am-4pm at City Park. I'm volunteering 2-6pm at one of the drink booths so come find me and say hi!
Louisiana SPCA’s Dog Day Afternoon is Louisiana's first walk-a-thon and festival celebrating our furry friends! It provides the perfect festive setting to celebrate our canine companions and make them feel like royalty.

The day highlight is the Gatsby Strut, a dog-friendly walk-a-thon around New Orleans City Park's Big Lake. Enjoy live local music, services and treats from animal vendors and artists, dog obedience demos, dog contests and great prizes! Dog Day Afternoon is attended by over 2,000 family and canine members!
