The Roundup: 3 things to do this week
Take your dog out on the town
While there’s plenty of events geared toward humans this summer, Dog’s Day of Summer may be one of the only ones specifically for your four- legged friend.
Hosted by the Elkton Chamber & Alliance, this event was originally scheduled for July, but was postponed until this Thursday due to the heat. With the weather looking cooler this time around, dog owners and dog lovers are once again invited to come downtown between 4 and 7: 30 p. m.
During this time, local businesses will be offering dog- related goodies and services, including dog treats, puppy cooling stations and pet portraits. The Susquehanna Floods will also provide live music from 5: 30 to 7: 30 p. m. at the corner of North and Main streets.
