POSTPONED: Jackson County Parks + Rec Dogtober Fest 2017

POSTPONED: Jackson County Parks + Rec Dogtober Fest 2017

October 21, 2017

Due to the excessive rain forecasted for overnight tonight, the Dogtober Fest 2017 event scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed. It has been rescheduled for Sunday, Oct. 29. 
 
Even though the weather will most likely be nice tomorrow (Oct. 22), the excessive rain and wet grounds will make it difficult to park cars and set up vendors. 

Four-legged friends and their owners are invited to gather for fun, games and competition at the 24th Annual Dogtober Fest 2017 presented by Jackson County Parks + Rec. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 29 at the Kemper Outdoor Education Center, located at 8201 Jasper Bell Road in Blue Springs.
 
Admission is free with a donation of canned or bagged dog food for the Jackson County Regional Animal Shelter (Great Plains SPCA) and the Lee’s Summit Animal Shelter. The goal is to collect five tons.
 
New this year is the non-competitive “Canine Adventure Challenge.” The 20-plus course features obstacles designed to intrigue and build teamwork among dogs and owners. It’s done on a leash, allowing all dogs to join in, whether they have advanced training or none at all.
 
Visitors can also participate in the popular “Tails for Trails Dog-Walk for Parks,” which is a one-mile walk on the nature trail at Kemper Outdoor Education Center. Registration is $20 in advance or $25 at the gate. Participants will receive a goodie-bag and have a chance to win valuable prizes. There are also small entry fees for dog sport competitions, mini-clinics and workshops.
 
Dogtober Fest 2017 is full of free contests and games throughout the day, such as Bobbing for Biscuits, Musical Discs and Roll-Over Races. And, don’t forget the Halloween Costume Contest at 1 p.m., featuring three categories: Frightful, Delightful (single or pair entries) and another for groups (3 or more dogs).

Approximately 75 vendor booths will feature pet products, services, breed education and demonstrations for pet owners. In addition, area animal shelters and rescue groups will showcase dogs available for adoption.
 
The deadline to register is fast approaching for owners who want to enter their dogs in select events and competitions. Download  Dogtober Fest 2017 brochure for information.
