There's going to be a dog walk sponsored by they Terry Fox community - this is the 3rd one that's been held so far this summer, and I think there's still a couple more planned for this summer.
The event is being held at Point Pleasant Park from 9am to 11am and people are meeting up at the Tower Road entrance and the first 100 donations will get a free bandana. There will be free doggy treats from Bark & Fitz.
Also at Point Pleasant Park - Shakespeare by the Sea is starting up tomorrow - July 1st, and I don't know how many people know that the productions are dog friendly!! So if you're up to the Bard, the Bard is up for dogs. Go to their website at http://www.shakespearebythesea.ca/ to find out which productions they're doing up this year - you can also go to my Point Pleasant Park page to find out the dog rules for the park and a little more information about the Shakespeare by the Sea productions and dogs.
There are a BUNCH of events listed on the Canada Day events listings at hrmcanadaday.ca - too numerous to mention here - and a lot of them sound like there's no reason why they would not be dog friendly - parades, picnics, and event is even featuring an act called the "Cool Canines" - that's The Great Canadian Family Picnic on the Commons Jul 1, 2009 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM - so go to their website at http://www.hrmcanadaday.ca/events.php to check everything out.
Healing Animal SCARS is having a Car Wash on Canada Day, at the Irving Blue Canoe in Eastern Passage on Cow Bay Road. It will be held from 10am to 4pm so please bring your vehicle to get washed to fundraise for the kitties!
