Free! Doggy Dip (All Ages)

August 27, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

It’s a dog day of summer at our first ever Doggy Dip at Diamond Lake Beach! On the sandy side, dogs will get to roam the beach, splash, and play, or maybe learn to swim for the first time. On the grassy side, all dogs must be on a leash where they will get to travel from vendor to vendor to collect yummy treats, play games, and make a craft. Yes, we said to make a craft! Lunch from a food truck will be available for purchase. Don’t have a dog? Come check out our adoptable dogs from a local shelter at the event. Dogs must be friendly with people and other dogs. A waiver must be signed before entering. There will be NO human swimming at this event.

Questions? Please contact Kelli Schillaci at kschillaci@mundeleinparks.org.
