FERNDALE, MICH (WXYZ) - Downtown Ferndale goes to the dogs on Thursday, October 17 when Fido Does Ferndale, The Dog's Night Out, takes over the district with canine activities, vendors and doggone good fun.
The FUN event happens from 5-9 pm and takes place throughout the downtown with headquarters set up at Schiffer Park at Planavon & West Nine Mile Road. The Dog's Night Out includes a canine treasure hunt featuring FREE doggie treats at more than a dozen participating businesses, a Pooch Parade, dog contest and opportunities to meet and make a new best friend via several pet rescues and adoption agencies.
More than 20 dog-friendly venders will be set up on Downtown Ferndale sidewalks for the event. And they'll be selling everything from organic foods, boarding and grooming and pet sitting to doggie bandanas and much more.
Fido Does Ferndale is supported by Pet Supplies Plus, Bubble & Bark, Canine to Five and Berkley Eyeware. Proceeds from the event will go into the fund for a doggie water fountain in Downtown Ferndale, which has been an ongoing goal of Fido for the past two years.
