When we’re in the “dog days of summer” and your furry friend needs to beat the heat, head over to a “pool pawty” at Alameda Pool in Butler or the Cranberry Township Waterpark. They’ll have a great time splashing around with other dogs. But perhaps our canine friends make the biggest splash at Dock Dogs during the Moraine State Park Regatta in August.
Here in Butler County, “man’s best friend” can even go to exciting events and attractions with you! If you’re a jeep enthusiast and a dog lover, then you’ll really enjoy taking your pet to the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival held every year at Cooper’s Lake in June. Or if you want to catch the next hit on the big screen, you and your canine can cruise over to Starlight Drive-In for a night of nostalgic entertainment under the stars. If you feel like strutting your stuff with your pet or want to watch others, then don’t miss the annual Pet Parade during the Saxonburg Fireman's Carnival in mid-July.
