If you’re looking for something fun to do on Saturday, May 12, why not head down to Washington Square Park for the annual Daschshund Parade?
This celebration of weiner dogs is in its 11th year, and visitors will get to enjoy all things Doxie – from vendors to the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile.
The fun starts at noon. The parade organizers ask that only Dachshunds participate in the parade, and that dog owners bring water for their dogs along with poop bags to pick up after their pooches.
Washington Square Park is at 180 S. Clinton Ave, opposite GEVA Theater. You can learn more on the Rochester Dachshund Parade website.
Join the folks from Pitty Love Rescue on Wednesday, October 19 at The Little Theater as they host the Rochester, NY screening of the documentary film, “Beyond The Myth”.
The film explores the contributing factors behind the public’s generalized fear of “pit bulls”, and examines the conflict existing between advocates and opponents of breed discriminatory laws, commonly referred to as breed bans. It investigates the myths associated with the breed, challenges the idea that they are inherently vicious, presenting eye-opening research regarding the media’s role in influencing people’s opinion on “pit bulls”.
The screening begins at 7 PM on Wednesday, October 19 at The Little Theater, 240 East Avenue. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance at www.beyondthemythmovie.com.
