According to reports, during the event, there were food, live music, other forms of entertainment, corgi races, and a pool for doggos.
The event last Saturday was the ninth of its kind in Calgary. This is the first time they launched the same event since last year because the planned event got cancelled due to the pandemic. In the past, as many as 15,000 people would attend Pet-A-Palooza, Day of the Dog event. However, this year, there was a smaller turnout. Around 7,000 people and 5,000 dogs enjoyed the weekend event.
Lonnie Powell of the Just Love Animals Society said in a statement, “We took the music festival template and put it towards the pet industry. The community’s come out in droves. I think we’ve been cooped up for a year and a half, we needed somewhere to go, with people to interact with… and what brings us more together than the authentic bond we have together with our pets.”
The event was a two-day event and lasted until Sunday.
