AUSTIN (KXAN) — Dogs will take over the Domain on Saturday for Dogtoberfest, a celebration of our four-legged friends and a chance to bring awareness to the animals needing to be adopted in Austin.
There will be 50 pet vendors, a silent auction, wiener dog races, and a canine costume contest. Stan Parish, co-founder of Dogtoberfest, joins us in the KXAN studio to preview the event.
Make sure you and your pet dress to impress. KXAN New anchors Erin Cargile and John Dabokovich and reporter Alicia Inns will be at the event judging the costume contest. The CW Austin’s Joe Barlow will emcee the event.
In the past more than 8,000 people showed up with their furry friends.
It runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Domain between Dillard’s and Dicks Sporting Goods.
