Westmont’s Pets in the Park set for Sunday

The Westmont Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Bureau will host it 11th annual Pets in the Park event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 24 in the southeast parking lot of Ty Warner Park, 700 Blackhawk Drive.

The event was initially scheduled for Sept. 17.

The event celebrates, educates and encourages compassion and awareness between area families and their pets. The event will feature vendors with pet treats, toys, equipment, pet rescue information and much more, according to a news release.

There will be opportunities to talk to and ask questions of local veterinarians, entertainment from local dance troupes and a food truck with a family-friendly menu. Children and adults can get close and personal with various unique pets and learn about their habits and care.

This event offers an opportunity to spend some time with your favorite four-legged animal or to find one. The winner of the Westmont pet photo contest will also be announced. In addition, there will be a touch-a-truck display where children and adults can explore and learn about a wide range of trucks and commercial vehicles.

Pet owners are asked to sign up for the pet parade, which will begin at 1:30 p.m. The pet contest will feature awards in several categories including best in show, best costume, largest pet, smallest pet, most unusual pet and best pet trick.
