Special Dog Activities:

Meet the PupScouts: noon – 3 pm 
PupScouts are similar to the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. They enjoy earning badges, helping others, and meeting new friends, but this group is strictly for dogs and their families. Join in for a meet-and-greet with the adorable furry members of this group and learn about joining or starting your own troop. 

Fire Safety Demo with Molly and the Keep Kids Safe Fire Foundation: 1 pm
Join Molly the dog for a special fire safety presentation with her human, retired firefighter Dayna Hilton. Delight in Molly’s educationally-sound, fun, and life-saving fire safety program. Learn how Molly helps saves lives, and listen to a reading of a children’s fire safety book while Molly helps turn a page or two. Watch Molly demonstrate how she “tests” a smoke alarm and crawls under smoke where the air is safer and cooler in a fire. Learn a fire safety song while Dayna plays her ukulele. The program culminates with Molly raising her paw as she inducts young audience members as Junior Firefighters. After the program, audience members can pet Molly, take a photo with her, and receive a Molly trading card.

Please note: There will be plenty of dogs on-site for guests to mingle with, but visitors are NOT PERMITTED to bring their own dogs on site, unless it is a licensed therapy dog.
