June First Wednesday is "DOG‘S NIGHT OUT"
It’s the most popular First Wednesday of the year and its all for man’s/woman’s best friend. June 2nd is Dog’s Night Out where the evening is planned just for Fido. The second annual Dog of the Year and Cutest Puppy of the Year runway contest takes place on Chemeketa Street at 5:00 pm. Enter your canine friend to be the new year’s poster child. Go Downtown Salem will partner with the Willamette Humane Society to raise money for our local shelter. Registration starts at 5 pm and your $10.00 entry fee will be donated to the Willamette Humane Society. Preliminary judging will be conducted by size of dog; small, medium, large, and puppies. The top five in each of these four categories will go on to the finals to compete for the Dog of the Year or Cutest Puppy. The finals start at 6:45 pm. All breeds, mixes, and life experiences are encouraged to strut their stuff; judges can be influenced by wagging tails and a face lick or two.
You can expect a special appearance by Smudge, the official dog columnist for the Statesman Journal. And, McGruff the Crime Dog, will be on site as well as Dollar Dog from Rivermark Community Credit Union.
