The Oak Lawn Park District will host its annual Woofstock festival, a free fest for dogs and people, from 1 to 4 p.m. Sept. 14 at Bailey’s Crossing Dog Park, 9910 S. Melvina Ave., Oak Lawn.
The event will feature contests, a dog fashion show, doggie dashes and vendor booths, according to a release from the park district. Concessions will be available for purchase.
A new wrinkle this year is that participants are encouraged to bring donations of dog treats, food, and toys, which are to be distributed to local animal organizations in need, the release said.
Participants need not register in advance.
