Dog days are coming with the return of that most excellent and “pawsome” event — the Sienna Plantation Canine Carnival and Doggone Fun Run and Walk on Saturday, April 14.
Registration for the “pup-ular” fun run/walk benefitting Fort Bend Cares Charitable Foundation is now open. Humans can go solo on a 5K run beginning at 8 a.m. or team up with their favorite pooches for a joint 5K (leashes required) at 8:20 a.m. A 1-mile walk/run is available for hounds and humans wanting to save up their energy for the Canine Carnival that follows. Register by March 31 to take advantage of early bird pricing. The carnival is free and open to the public.
The pooch party really gets rolling at 9 a.m. when four-legged Fidos begin “raising the ruff” at Sienna’s Village of Sawmill Lake, 9815 Cameron Way. Fort Bend’s most eagerly anticipated canine-friendly event features carnival rides and games, a dog costume contest, pet adoptions, inflatables, food trucks, face painting, high-flying performances by the Houston Disc Dogs and more.
Fort Bend Cares provides grants to charitable organizations that offer services to disadvantage youth, awarding an average of 20-30 grants per year to nonprofits that direct services to disadvantaged youth in Fort Bend County.
Save the date, register and come on out to “paws-itively” the happiest place in Texas for a tail-wagging salute to man’s best friend!
