MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Henry Meier Festival Park is going to the dogs this weekend.
Fromm Petfest returns for a 6th year Saturday.
Animal lovers can bring their pets to the park from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Admission is free for pets and their humans. Parking is also free.
“Fromm Petfest has quickly become a well-loved tradition, both within our family-owned business as well as the surrounding Milwaukee communities and beyond,” said Bryan Nieman, Brand Director and fifth-generation family member at Fromm Family Foods. “We’re incredibly proud to have a platform that connects families and pet lovers in a lasting and memorable way.”
This year’s festival will bring back family and pet-favorite activities, including dock diving, lure and agility courses, the Doggie Dash speed trial, Kitty City and more. New attractions this year include a larger Adoption Avenue featuring even more rescues and animal-related non-profits, a new Vendor Village supporting emerging makers, crafters and small businesses and the Lap Dog Lounge a restful area built for puppies and people who need a break.
Dogs and cats of all kinds are welcome as long as they are on leash, up-to-date on vaccinations and sign the event waiver upon entering the grounds.
