North Texas Irish Festival
The North Texas Irish Festival is a Texas-sized cultural celebration that showcases the traditions and heritage of the Irish community in Dallas. This event is pet-friendly, as long as your dog is on-leash and well-behaved. Festival organizers ask that you make sure to pick up after your pet. From the FAQ section of the North Texas Irish Festival website: Can I bring my dog to the festival? Most certainly! In fact we encourage all our four legged friends to come out and enjoy the weekend festivities. We do ask, however, that you keep them on a short leash at all times, be wary of other dogs and small children, and do bring a supply of plastic bags to “clean up” after your pets. We also request a $1 donation to the SPCA for all pets. Unruly dogs will be asked to leave, and to take their owners with them. We are not responsibile for any incidents involving dogs – or their owners! There is also a tent designated specifically for adoptable pets, with many local rescues represented. Furry adoptable friends will be available at the Waggin’ Wagon, Prairie Paws Adoption Center’s mobile adoption trailer. For more information and to purchase […]
