Splash and play at Tails on the Trails

Splash and play at Tails on the Trails
Posted on 07/19/2018

Everyone deserves to cool off at the pool this summer, even dogs! Bring your furry friend to the Tails on the Trails Pet Festival on Saturday, August 11 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Ad Astra Park (83rd Street & Maurer Road).

Before arriving, make sure your dog brushes up on their skills or puts on their best costume to participate in the pet talent show. Awards will be given in categories like Best Trick, Best Talker, Most Affectionate and Best Dressed.

You can also browse the various pet vendor booths for tools or treats your dog will love or take in a demonstration from the Lenexa Police Department K9 unit.
