Floriade will welcome pooches big and small on Sunday 15 October for this year’s Dogs’ Day Out.
With a range of dog specific retail vendors and dog friendly programming on stage and around the park, Floriade will open its gates to our furry friends to experience a day with the blooms.
The Stage 88 Lawns will host a demonstration by the ACT Companion Dog Club Display Team at 1:30pm, followed by the Annual Dogs Day Out Fashion Paw-rade at 2:30pm. If you would like the chance to win some great prizes in the Paw-rade, just come along with your furry fashionista and register for the competition at Stage 88 from 1:30pm.
Want to capture a portrait with your pooch or snap a group photo with your whole dog club? Spectrum Photography will be on site all day with their Open Photo Booth so you can capture a photo of your fur family amongst the blooms.
