One of the things I love so much about Blue Ridge is all of the dog lovers that come to visit this town. The town is so welcoming of all the animals as many have dog bowls full of cold fresh water for all the visiting four legged friends. Also, many allow you to take your “baby” into the store with you!
If you have not had the chance to enjoy the Paws in the Park, now is the year for this fun opportunity. On Saturday, October 15th, bring your pet to the 4th annual event. Join hundreds at the beginning of the leaf season for a fast and yet relatively flat certified 5K run and Mutt Mile! (the mutt mile is a shorter version. This is perfect for walkers and little ones)
The 5K registration starts at 7:30 and the race begins at 8:30. This great event is sponsored by the Humane Society of Blue Ridge, Blue Ridge Mountain Arts Association and the store Love Dogs and Cats too.
After the race, there will be a parade that is always a blast. Many dress up their adorable pets and show them off in the parade which is a walk around the beautiful town of Blue Ridge. Even kitties and llamas have participated in the fun. Come participate in one of the many events that make this town so awesome! Also, call us to book your pet friendly cabin for that weekend.
