How long has it been since you and (insert pet name here) spent the day hanging out together … outside the house?
Get your furry companion’s tail a waggin’ with See Spot Walk this Saturday, Oct. 7, at Julia Davis Park, 700 S. Capitol Blvd., Boise.
Festivities kick off at 9 a.m. and the walk starts at 10 a.m.
The annual dog walk and festival is pretty much centered on your buddy with a one-mile walk, pet vendors, demonstrations and doggie contests.
Sign your furry friend up for Dressed to the K-Nines (best pet costume), Who’s Got The Voice?, Tricks for Treats, or the Sticky Licky Peanut Butter Challenge (get that spoon clean the quickest).
The 25th annual event benefits the Idaho Humane Society, which advocates for the welfare and responsible care of animals, protects them from neglect and cruelty, and promotes humane education, awareness and compassion.
Registration is $30 per walker (includes one dog scarf), $15 for children 12 and younger. Day-of registration is also available for $35 general and $20 children. Feel free to bring more than one dog, but they must be under control at all times.
Go to seespotwalk.org to register or for more information.
Walk to celebrate, honor and remember those touched by cancer
Light the Night Walk is back for its 17th consecutive year in Boise on Thursday, Oct. 5.
Registration opens at 5:30 p.m., with food from Noodles & Company, music and family activities including face painting, balloon animals, stilt walkers and more at Capitol Park, 601 W. Jefferson St., Boise.
The two-mile walk begins at 7 p.m. from the park to 3rd Street and through Downtown Boise and up 8th Street before returning to the park.
A large fireworks display will illuminate the night’s sky as walkers make their way around the park to celebrate in front of the State Capitol.
The event supports the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, which funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.
Registration is free, but fundraising is an option.
Register in advance at lightthenight.org/events/boise or on site the day of the event.
Light The Night is a magical evening … our community coming together to fight blood cancers. The feeling of camaraderie and goodwill is powerful and on display from the incredible lighted lanterns to the amazing fireworks. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society truly lights up the Boise night!
