Dog Daze coming soon     Send a link to a friend

[MAY 29, 2004]  Main Street Lincoln presents the third annual Dog Daze of Summer, with events beginning at 9:30 a.m. June 26 in downtown Lincoln. As in past years, dogs and their owners are invited to attend the popular day out on the town. Previous experience has proven that both species enjoy the unique experience of gathering together for a time of showing off, getting acquainted, and some even see neighbors they don't see any other time of the year.

If you have gone before, it's a sure thing you'll be going again, because who wants to miss seeing man and his best friend out having fun? If you haven't attended, there is no way to explain all the delight you will witness as the dogs and their owners either put on their best performance or simply enjoy themselves.


  • Fun contests for your dog: Abe's choice, best dressed, cutest, fastest eater, most kissable, most spots, most unique tail, pet tricks
  • Wading pools
  • K-9 demonstrations
  • Pet parade led by Abe, Fido and Mary Todd
  • Stuff the doghouse for donations
  • Logan County Animal Control adoptables
  • Peoria Greyhound Rescue
  • K-9 Kids Zone
  • "Who Let the Dogs Out" dog art

For those who like to participate in the dog walk, parade registration begins at 8:30 a.m. at the Blue Dog Inn the day of the event. To preregister your dog, please call Main Street Lincoln at (217) 732-2929. Register by June 23 for $8 or $10 on-site. All registered dogs will receive a Dog Daze of Summer bandanna.

All dogs must be friendly, current on their vaccinations and on leash at all times. When entering your dog in contests, it is important that your dog is having fun. If your dog is stressed and doesn't like it, then we won't either.

Best Friends Animal Hospital, Big R and Lincoln Animal Hospital sponsor Dog Daze.
