The Dog Days of Summer are upon us, and Westonka Community & Commerce is excited to announce that Dog Days Westonka 2023 will be taking place on Saturday, August 12, 2023.    The event will once again be held at Surfside Park in Mound, which is located at 2670 Commerce Blvd.

The event goes from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will include a pet expo with a wide variety of pet products, services, and activities. The fun kicks off with the annual pet parade where pets and their people are invited to show up in costume. There will also be a cutest puppy contest, paddle-boarding with your dog demonstrations, Police Dog demonstration by Officer Eric and K9 Mattis from the Minnetonka Police Dept, food trucks, and music provided by Tom Burnevik of “TomTyme”.

Plus, there are several new attractions to check out. “Splash for Cash” is taking the summer off due to early poor water conditions. Instead, dogs will be able to sniff out prizes in the “Doggy Dune Dig.” Also new this year, a kitty corner dedicated to cat related products and services. Justin M. Anderson, the author of “Saving Stripes: A Kitty’s Story,” will be at the festival all day signing books.

This fun event is just around the corner, so don’t miss out! Attached you will find the Exhibitor/Vendor and/or Sponsorship forms for you to complete and return to secure your space.
