Market Days - Paws at the River

Saturday, October 26, 2019

Yorktown Market Days' annual Paws at the River is designed to bring awareness to animal rescue organizations and help place adoptable pets in their “furever” homes.

Say goodbye to the Dog Days of Summer and hello to the Dog Days of Fall! While Yorktown Market Days is pet-friendly all year, Paws at the River is an annual tradition that helps to raise awareness about local animal rescue groups and organizations. You are encouraged to bring your pup with you while you shop! Be sure to stop by FiDough Homemade Dog Treats where Teresa will be passing out limited free samples (with products available for purchase), get a professional picture or caricature with your canine companion, and march in Yorktown’s first-ever Halloween Pet Parade. You can dress up, too! The parade starts promptly at 10 a.m. with participants asked to gather near the Freight Shed. Prizes will be awarded to the most creative costumes. Glenn from Carrot Tree Kitchens will do a dog biscuit chef's demo at 10:30 a.m., and Robbie Kerns and Clayton Ware will provide acoustical rock and blues for the day.
