Tats for Tails Block Party set for Oct. 15
DENTON — The Caroline County Humane Society and Black Anchor Tattoo will be raising money for Caroline animals at the third annual Tats for Tails Block Party Saturday, Oct. 15, in Denton.
The free, family block party will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in downtown Denton on Market Street between 1st and 3rd streets.
The feature event for the block party will be Ridgley Town Commissioner Anthony Casey, Benedictine School Vice Principal Stephanie Franklin and WCEI and WINX FM Radio host Jules McCauley competing in a “get them tattooed” fundraising competition. They are all willing to get tattooed for the animals if they can raise $5,000 each for the animals of Caroline County. Go to www.carolinehumane.org and click on the link for their fundraising pages.
The block party also will feature a bounce house for the kids, face painting, alpacas, vendors, food trucks, adoptable pets and more. Local Band Silhouette Song along with DJ Rick Ivens will be providing music in front of the town hall throughout the day.
New this year is the Pawsitive Pet Parade where contestants can compete in the following categories — best pet costume, best costume combo owner and pet, most talented, most unique looking and grand champion. Entrance fee is just $10 in advance ($15 day of event) and trophies will be given.
Again this year there will also be a dunk tank where members of the community will be able to dunk their favorite local celebrities all for the animals of the county. Also new this year is the Rabies clinic that will be hosted from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. behind the court house. Vaccines will be just $5 per animal.
On the same day from noon to 8 p.m., Black Anchor Tattoo, located at 211 Market St, Denton MD, will be donating a portion of the monies earned from tattoos done during the event to the Caroline County Humane Society.
