A place for pet lovers

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.
