Summer goes to the dogs
The Manayunk Development Corp. hosted a Dog Day of Summer event at the Venice Island Ampitheatre on Sunday, Aug. 26. The event featured organizations offering pet adoption, pet-friendly vendors, pet-friendly baked goods, food trucks and a congenial atmosphere for dog lovers to bond together. A pet photo booth was also available courtesy of Alexa Nahas Photography. Part of the proceeds from the event will benefit the National Canine Cancer Foundation.
