Posted: Wednesday, June 8, 2016 – 10:28 AM
Woofstock is coming to Beverly Hills’ Roxbury Park June 26! The beloved doggie extravaganza is everything dog, from muts to massage, all under one roof. Rained out in March, the event was rescheduled for Sunday, June 26 at Roxbury Park Wiggly Field, from 11am – 3pm.
The day-long doggie festival features a Pet Parade Costume Contest, with three catagories – “Su-Paw” Heroes, Most Creative and Baseball Dog of Fame, the last created by Mayor John Mirisch to promote the Play Ball initiative in conjunction with Major League Baseball and Mayors across the country to promote youth participation in the sport of baseball.
The event also features pet adoptions, pet-related goods and services, and super-animal demonstrations like frisbee and agility. The Pet Care Foundation and the The Amanda Foundation will bring over 120 pets available for adoption, so if you are considering adding a canine companion to your life, please consider adopting!
Another fun feature will be doggie wedding ceremonies, along with free eats and treats for pets, play samples, and canine massage therapy.
The event is free and parking is too, at Beverly Hills High School across the street. Pet-friendly shuttles will run from 10:45-5 pm. For more information visit www.beverlyhills.org/woofstock
