|Bring Your Dog and Compete During First-Ever Paws in the Park Contest at Heritage Park|
Show off your pooch in Heritage Park during the Johnson County Park and Recreation District's first-ever Paws in the Park contest in mid-June.
The event will take place beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday June 19 in the off-leash area located in the northeast section of the park. Heritage Park is located at 16050 Pflumm, Olathe.
From the Fastest Fetcher to the Best Kisser, Paws in the Park will feature a category for every dog. Dog obedience lessons, kid’s activities, and vendors with exciting dog-related items will be in the park to round out the day. Looking for a new best friend? Dogs will be available for adoption through a local animal shelter. Paws in the Park is expected to become an annual event.
