Last weekend it was a bit wet to take Fido out for a walk so make up for it this weekend with a special dog-centric day in Lake Eola. The 20th Annual Paws in the Park will be at Lake Eola Park from 9a-3p. The free event will have plenty of dog focused fun.
Animal Planet’s Victoria Stilwell, star of “It’s Me or the Dog,” will be there to meet with all the great four-legged friends. A special walk to raise money for the SPCA of Central Florida will kick off the morning. All new this year will be a Splash Dogs dock diving competitions throughout the day. $10 micro-chipping will be offered by 24PetWatch throughout the day. The kids aren’t being left out either with a Disney Kids & Family Zone area just for them where Disney’s most famous dog, Pluto, is sure to make an appearance.
Dogs are welcome to attend but for the safety of everyone please make sure they are at least 6 months old, on a collar and leash, and no females in heat.
Make sure to check out the video below with Orlando City Commissioner Patty Sheehan telling why she’s taking part in the walk on Saturday.
