WOOFSTOCK: “Peace, Harmony & Doggy Love” Comes to Mahopac on Sunday, June 12

Mahopac, NY, is going to the dogs—again. On June 12, WOOFSTOCK 2011 takes over Sycamore Park, 790 Long Pond Road in Mahopac, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine. This family-and-best-friend event is hosted by the Friends of Sycamore Dog Park, Inc., a “pack” of individuals who love their dogs and their community.

The park-wide celebration will include doggy demonstrations, local vendors, animal rescue groups, on-site micro-chipping, contests, tie dyeing, all-day music and children’s entertainment, photo booths, food and more. “Don’t fret if you are without a furry friend,” adds Robert Wachtel, an organizer of the event. “WOOFSTOCK is about parents and ‘pawrents’ coming together with their brood, furry or not, in peace, harmony and doggy love.”

In a cooperative collaboration with the Carmel Parks and Recreation Department, the Friends of Sycamore Dog Park, Inc. helps manage the dog park by addressing problems and seeking to educate members and the community about appropriate dog park etiquette and responsible dog ownership. They also provide assistance to local rescue groups and dog-related businesses. “Funds raised at WOOFSTOCK will assist these local rescue groups and make improvements to the park,” Wachtel says. “So get out those bell-bottoms, tie-dye shirts and love beads, put a flower in your hair, and join us.”

Admission is $1 per person. For more event information, or for vendor/sponsor information, visit Woofstock2011.com.
