Pets in the Park

Several hundred people attended the inaugural Poway Pets in the Park event at Old Poway Park in March. The event featured live entertainment by The Fabulous Woodies, competitions, food, games, a petting zoo, raffles, vendors, and pet adoptions. Mary Caraway and Bailey the Yorkie won big in the competitions – the pair was named the winner of the Look-alike Competition in their matching Hawaiian-inspired attire and scored Best Costume for their fireman and firedog outfits. Pets in the Park raised money for the Poway Senior Center, with proceeds going towards the home meal delivery program and future purchase of a new transit van.
