Beer and bikes? Bah! Canine adventure and fun in the mountains is where it’s at and we’re inviting all dogs for a day of hilarity, activity, and adventure in the mountains! The Colorado Mountain Dog Festival takes place in Red Feather Lakes on September 28th , 2013 when the aspen will be turning and the temperatures are dog-gone perfect.
The event features hiking, trail running, Frisbee golf, lake swimming for the pups, live music, great food and doggie vendors, plus plenty of free vet checks and speakers on canine well-being such as massage, physical therapy, acupuncture, and many more. Kids can enter the art contest, or decorate their own dog biscuits at this family friendly event.
The festival benefits all of the volunteer fire departments in the Red Feather area who fought the High Peak fire just last year. We appreciate them so much.
Calling all doggies! It’s definitely your day!
