Harlo's Healthy Pets will be at the K-9 Water Festival on Sunday, 10/16 for the 10 AM session (with Lola and Harlen!), but you can take part with your dog during any session this weekend.
The dog days of summer may be long gone, but you can still pamper your pooches during the lingering heat of a South Florida fall by letting them frolic at three water parks on dogs-only days. One of Broward County Parks and Recreation’s most popular programs for the past doz...en years, the K9 Water Festivals, returns to Castaway Island at T.Y. Park in Hollywood, which has events on October 15 and 16.
Admission is $5 per dog per 50-minute session, with sessions beginning on the hour from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Only dogs weighing 25 pounds or less will be permitted for the final session of each day. Donations of dog and cat food, treats, blankets, and toys will be accepted on behalf of the homeless animals at Broward County shelters.
A few rules apply: All dogs must be off leash when inside the facility and must be sociable and well behaved. Proof of current rabies vaccination and county license tag are required. Other than lifeguards, no humans will be allowed inside the water playgrounds. Finally, dogs are limited to no more than two sessions per day, and dogs must be at least 4 months of age to participate.
For more information, call T.Y. Park at 954-357-8811. The parks’ regular weekend and holiday gate entrance fee of $1.50/person (children 5 and under free) will be in effect for this event.
