If you’re the proud parent of a pooch, mark your calendar for Saturday, August 17th. That’s when the Waggathon comes to Allentown, setting up shop just a stone’s throw from Regency Towers at Mack Pool. The event will combine aspects of Allentown’s Woofstock with programming by the Lehigh County Humane Society for a full day of dog-centric fun.
The festivities run from 12 to 5 p.m., and proceeds benefit nearby Dixon Street Dog Park. So you’ll probably want to bring along your wallet to lend your support. Spend a few dollars on some food for yourself or specialty products for your pet, courtesy of local vendors. Or just check out the dog-friendly entertainment, educational exhibits, and training classes. You can also let your canine go for a dip in Mack Pool for a small fee.
