Get those winning costumes ready! It's time for Pug Super Heroes to fly into the fairgrounds and dazzle everyone with their super powers! Competition will be fierce as Pugs battle evil in the costume contests, vie for honors as Most Distinguished Senior Pug, strut their stuff in the Wet T-shirt contest, and chow down for prizes in the Cupcake Chomp! And this year your Pug will get his or her chance to shine in our new Talent Contest, "Pug Stars!" Imagine the possibilities! First contest starts at 11 AM, and contest entry fees are $5.00 per Pug, per contest entered. Pugs only, please. Pugs dressed in any costume may enter the costume contests, however only those dressed in theme costumes will be eligible for prizes.
After a "hard" day of competition, your Pug can chill out at our exclusive Pug Café ~ where Pugs in the know go to relax and socialize ~ while you shop for great new items at our Unique Pug Boutique, visit our vendors, enjoy a beverage or snack, or take a chance on our more than 20 fun-filled raffle baskets.
If your Pug needs his nails clipped, the services of a registered veterinary technician will be available, and we will also have three veterinarians on hand to answer your questions in our "Ask the Vet" booth.
