“We want to give families a fun alternative to more expensive fall events while helping Yukon’s Pets & People Humane Society maintain our three-acre dog park, which is a popular destination for visitors to Yukon,” Bryant said.

Cannon said, “Festival proceeds will help Pets & People fix fences, mow, trim trees, spray for mosquitos and add a windmill to keep water moving in our pond at our Community Dog Park, which is free and open to the public.”

Pets & People is seeking two $300 sponsors to purchase benches to expand seating in Yukon’s Community Dog Park.
