[JUNE 1, 2006] On Saturday, Main Street Lincoln will host the
fifth annual dog event, entitled "Puttin' on the Dog." This event
will please any canine lover! Bring your dogs to the Blue Dog Inn
and register to participate in all of the morning festivities.
Registration begins at 8 a.m., with special attractions leading the
pet parade to the courthouse at 9:30. The cost is just $5 per dog
and includes a goody bag.
Dogs may also enter the pageant, with
prizes to be awarded for the smallest, biggest, most unique name,
pet-owner look-alike and the best talent. An Abe's Choice award will
be presented. A photo op on the courthouse lawn will give pet owners
a chance to have their dog's picture taken with Abraham Lincoln or
Miss Central Illinois.
Pools with water will be provided on the courthouse lawn for all
of the Fidos to enjoy.
Other activities include a table set up for the Humane Society
and for information regarding Illinois Main Street Day.
