Calling all pups and their people to splash and play at the City of Mesquite’s 17th Annual Doggie Splash Day. The event will be held from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 5, at Vanston Pool, 2913 Oates Dr. in Mesquite.
Swimmers will have access to the wading pool and lap pool. Dogs can compete for prizes in the pet swimsuit contest, diving contest, paddle race, and a trick or talent contest. Sponsored by Dallas Regional Medical Center and Pet Supplies Plus, Doggie Splash Day will feature free pupsicles while supplies last and a doggie selfie station.
New this year! Pet parents can skip the line and pre-register their dogs and reserve their free puppaccino at www.cityofmesquite.com/DoggieSplashDay.
Admission is $5 for one owner and one pet, $2 for each additional pet, and $1 for all spectators. A $2 discount will apply for those who bring a jar of jelly, peanut butter or seed butter to benefit the City’s Spread the Love campaign that helps feed children in need in Mesquite.
All dogs will be required to show proof of current vaccinations and must be accompanied by a responsible person age 16 and older. Aggressive or socially challenged dogs may be asked to leave. Lifeguards will be on duty.
