April 14, 10a-12p
West Plaza, Indianapolis City Market
Because every dog has his (or her!) day, we are putting on a dog show to celebrate the four-footed friends of our market customers! The show will feature four contests, judged by a panel of five judges, including John Aleshire, the C.E.O. of the Indianapolis Humane Society.
The contests are:
1. Best Dog/Owner Look-Alike
2. Best Dressed
3. Best Commands (Sit, Down, Stay)
4. Best Trick
Grand champions and runner-ups will be awarded ribbons and prizes. In addition, there will be several Indianapolis area pet organizations in the plaza prior to the beginning of the show, including the Indianapolis Humane Society, Animal Care and Control, Low Cost Spay Neuter Clinic and local rescue groups.
The registration fee is $5 per dog, per contest entered and will be collected the morning of the show. Participants are encouraged to pre-register by posting on the wall of the Facebook event or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, your dog’s name and the contests you would like to enter in your post or email. On-site registration the morning of Saturday, April 14th will also be available. All of the funds collected from the event will support the Eat Well Initiative at the IWFM and all participants with paws will receive a small bag of dog biscuits, courtesy of Pet Lovers Organic Bakery.
IN THE EVENT OF RAIN, the dog show will be cancelled as animals are not allowed in the market space. Tabeling organizations will set up their information tables on the second floor above the West Wing. Donated prizes will be raffled off beginning at 12:00p.m. Raffle entrants may purchase tickets, from 9:00a.m. until 11:45a.m., for $5; all proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Eat Well Initiative. Need not be present to win.
