Our goal for the event is to raise $10,000. Proceeds from event registrations and sponsors will go toward supporting the upcoming Erie trail expansion, trail amenities, trail signage, lifesaving medical care, spays, and neuters for the shelter animals.

There will also be food trucks, market vendors, dog demonstrations, costume contest, trunk n treat,  live music, and more.  Plans are well under way, and we are very excited to bring a new event that should prove to be both fun and engaging for everyone.
