Reston Pet Fiesta May 7

If you don’t want to let go of the spirit of Cinquo de Mayo this weekend, grab your pooch and head out to the Reston Pet Fiesta on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Reston Town Center. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-70s, so a day spent enjoying this outdoor festival that benefits homeless animals is sure to be memorable.

General admission is free, leashed dogs are welcome. Enjoy live bands, dance demonstrations, and a Dog House of Style Fashion Show with homeless dogs modeling the latest canine fashions.

The Tails on Trials dog walk begins at 10:00 a.m. and winds around the Reston Town Center and along the W&OD trail. Registered participants receive a goodie bag. Cost to register is $20 and can be done online.

Contests begin at 1:00 p.m. and include Best Dressed, Best Howl, Best Trick and Fastest Frosty Paws Eater. Cost to enter each category is $10, and you can pre-register online or onsite at the information booth at the Fiesta.

Proceeds from the walk and contests benefit GoodDogz.org, a nonprofit organization that works to educate potential adopters of homeless dogs on dog selection and care.

Reston Pet Fiesta sponsors include Dogtopia, NOVAdog magazine, Whole Pet Central and the Hope Center for Advanced Veterinary Medicine.
