SPCA plans pet parade at Lime Bluff Park

By Staff | Jun 21, 2011

Enjoy a day with the family and your special pets on Saturday, June 25, 2011 at the Lime Bluff Park, Wolf Township, Hughesville from 10 AM to 4 PM.

The day’s events will include Live bands, DJ entertainment, an antique car show, bocci ball, horseshoe and disk golf tournaments, displays from the Hughesville Fire Department, radio control models, demonstrations from master gardeners and insect control specialists and a special presentation of old historical buildings of Hughesville by Dr. Any Rogers and Robert Webster.

In addition, the Lycoming County SPCA will be on hand with demonstrations on animal adoptions, information on animal safety and dog bite prevention, kids games, pet products, SPCA t-shirts and snacks. “We are also conducting a repeat performance of the SPCA Dog Olympics that were recently held at the Pet Expo at Indian Park. If you missed the Olympics at the Park on June 5th, this is your chance to compete for some fun and prizes,” said John R. Hettinger, Director of Development.

As a special event of the day, at 1:30 PM, the Lime Bluff Park Authority and the Lycoming County SPCA will host a pet parade that will form and March within the park. Bring your favorite pets and march along with adoptable dogs from the SPCA. Prizes will be awarded in special categories.

The event is free admission. Some activities include modest donation fees that will benefit the Lime Bluff Park Authority and the Lycoming County SPCA.

Pre-registration is encouraged for specific events, but not required. Registration forms and a brochure for the event can be found at www.lycomingspca.org/content/special-events.

The SPCA is also seeking volunteers to help with SPCA games and Olympic events as well as walking with adoptable SPCA dogs. Anyone can assist the SPCA with the games and Olympic events. Volunteers that have been trained through the SPCA volunteer program to handle SPCA dogs at off-site events can help with dogs marching in the parade.
