Dogs are in for a treat.
Fryer Park is the spot for fun for dogs of all types and sizes and their owners from 1 to 4 p.m. June 10, when Grove City Parks and Recreation hosts the K-9 Carnival.
The event features rescue organizations, pet-care groups and vendors sharing information and selling materials to benefit visitors best friends. Those who stop by the park, located at 3899 Orders Road, may even meet a new addition for the family.
A fenced-off dog play area with access to Rotary Lake is open to all dogs and an additional enclosed area is offered for smaller dogs only. Dogs may go off leash in the play zones to interact with other canines and play in the water, but must remain leashed when not in designated areas.
After all the fun, owners can have their dogs bathed by Boy Scout Troop 136 for a donation.
Pets must be spayed or neutered and sociable with people and other dogs to attend. Owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets.
Businesses and organizations interested in reserving a spot to set up at the event should contact the parks and recreation office at 277-3050 or visit www.GroveCityOhio.gov. Non-profits can set up for free; for-profit vendors are charged a $25 fee.
