Demonstrations and Agility

Team Zoom Demonstrations

Team Zoom is back again in 2021 with their fun demonstrations and canine agility stunts that are sure to dazzle and amaze the onlooking public! They’ll be running demonstrations all day, so be sure to come by and check out Team Zoom in the Demo Area at Dog Day.

Lucky Dogs Lure Coursing

This is a chance for your furry little four-legged friend to get involved in the action with the Lucky Dogs Lure Coursing. Your little guy will be able to run around and chase the “lure” through the fenced-in course at Dog Day. They’ll have a big ole time and then go home and likely sleep for 3 days!

Contests and Prizes

Kid Costumes

Grab the kids costumes and come to the festival dressed to kill (or giggle if you prefer happy Halloween)!
