In the market for a new pet? Or, if not, do you want to just hang out at a place that will have a ton of cute and furry animals that are up to all kinds of shenanigans?

Well, hey, go to Pet Fest!

Pet Fest is Set to Return to Caras Park in Missoula This Summer

My girlfriend and I checked out Pet Fest when it was in Caras Park last year and had a good time - if you're a fan of dogs, it's definitely the place to be. There are tons of adoptable pets, plus a ton of booths offering up pet treats, clothes, accessories, and all kinds of fun stuff.

And that isn't even getting into the events, which include the Doggie Olympics - with a wide selection of contests for dogs to enter - or the Wacky Wiener Dog Dash, which is... pretty much exactly what it sounds like. We saw that last year and it quickly descended into chaos, so you can probably expect something similar this year.

So When is Pet Fest Happening This Year?

You can expect to see Pet Fest make its return to Caras Park in Missoula on Saturday, August 20th from 10 AM to 3 PM. For all the info you need on the event or any upcoming announcements, be sure to check out their Facebook event page.

Think you'll be checking out Pet Fest at Caras Park this year?
