Thank you to Dr. Ty Wolfe and Harbor Town Animal Clinic for joining us as Top Dog during Hot Diggity Dog Day!

Enjoy some quality time with your dog during this new Main Street event! Hot Diggity Dog Day is an event filled with games and activities for dogs and their owners; agility and training demonstrations;  pet-related products and services; and chances to win prizes.

Hot Diggity Dog Day will be held in at Main Street Beach. Bring Bowser and your $10 registration fee to enjoy:

  • Off leash swimming at the beach
  • Music Sit
  • Pool Party
  • Dogs Got Talent
  • American Ninja Dog
  • A 'Wag' Bag filled with dog goodies
  • A dog bandana
  • Entry into the Strutt Your Mutt parade at 12:30PM where dogs (and their owners) dress in nautical, summer or beach-themed costumes and promenade up Main Street to Victory Park where awards will be given for different categories. 

Stay in town afterwards for the "Weenie Walk" at our participating restaurants offering special hot dog and sausage menu items in addition to their regular menus. Many have dog-friendly patios, too or you can order to go and eat in any of our downtown parks with seating.

It's only $10 per dog to join us for this special day. Registration is now open! This is a fundraiser for Main Street Vermilion, a 501c(3) organization dedicated to the revitalization and beautification of historic Vermilion.

Don't want to play or don't have a dog? You can still be a spectator from outside the play area and shop vendors as well as spend an afternoon in downtown Vermilion.
