May Day - Spring Festival and Pet Expo

Saturday May 14th

Due to the heavy rain and wind forecasted for this weekend, May Day has been postponed to May 14th. 

May Day will feature craft and pet supply vendors, rescue groups, k9 demos, and more! We hope you will be able to join us for this fun event celebrating the return of spring and our beloved furry friends. Pets on a leash are welcome to attend.
