The City celebrates pets and their owners each year, usually in March, with this annual pet festival at the Keysville Dog Park, 2461 Keysville Avenue. Low-cost pet shots are usually offered by a local veterinarian. The City partners with organizations like PETCO and H.E.L.P. Animals, Inc. to bring Wags ‘n’ Whiskers to the public.
The Christmas Parade has been cancelled for this year.
There will not be an indoor event this year.
Santa will visit City Hall on Dec 4th to kick-off the Holiday Light Display.
