The first event of its kind in the area celebrating all pets – furry, feathered or otherwise – is set for Saturday and Sunday, August 8th (11 am to 7 pm) and 9th (11 am to 4 pm) at the Ridgeway Legion . Highlights of PetExpo’s two-day pet-friendly festival include presentations by Ultimate Air Dogs of Canada and demonstrations by Ruff Justice K9 Security Services both days along with an outdoor concert featuring local country sensation Chelsea Crites on Saturday evening.

I will have a booth outside with the other artisans and vendors and will be bringing a lot of my original animal paintings, as well as some fine art reproductions and cards so I’ll have art in a wide price range, affordable to all.
