Pawasee Dog Parade. June 22 at Oakwood Resort

Come paw-ty at the fur-st Pawasee Dog Parade hosted by Chautauqua Wawasee on Saturday, June 22. The parade will follow a one-quarter-mile route within the grounds of Oakwood Resort. This family event is really about showing off your best friend in our dog-loving community.

Participants are encouraged to decorate carts, wagons, strollers, and leashes, as well as dress up with their dogs. Awards will be presented to the best-dressed dog, best dog trick, best tail wag, and other categories…

Fur-real. Special O.P.S. K-9 Academy will provide an obedience demonstration along with a few tricks. They will also show off some special dog grooming ideas and hand out dog froyos (frozen yogurt formulated for dogs).

You can learn more about Syracuse’s own New Hope Pet Rescue and its efforts to rescue dogs and cats and place them with loving families. They will also be available to discuss how you can adopt a pet.

Syracuse-Wawasee Trails will provide information about our community’s dog-friendly trail system. They will also have a dog kissing booth and a local dog biscuit maker on hand.

Oakwood Resort will partner with Tito’s Vodka, the dog lover’s vodka, to sponsor a pop-up bar and will match their proceeds to support New Hope Pet Rescue. They will also provide dog tag engraving and other goodies.

Lakeland Animal Clinic will also be on hand to scan your dog’s microchip implant.

This event is free, but participants are encouraged to make a $15 donation. All of the money raised will go to New Hope Pet Rescue.
