Come out and party with some furry friends, as the Pet Emporium presents the fifth annual Pet Fest. It’s the largest pet festival in the area, with a focus on providing homes for needy animals. Over 30 different pet rescue groups will be on hand, ready to introduce festival-goers to their newest family member. But the event also features over 100 booths manned by vendors and exhibitors, ready to meet all your pet-related needs. And there’ll be more to see, with some cool animal performances, including frisbee-catching dogs and a horse exhibition courtesy of Sunshine Farm.
