Tired of the same old? We’ve got the scoop on some fun events this weekend to add a lil’ spice to your pup’s life. Run a 5K for beer, boogie to live music, hang out in the park, and learn how to communicate with your doggo this weekend in Denver.
1. RiNo 5K
RiNo (27th & Larimer), Denver
Saturday, July 23, 8.30 a.m; registration required
Is there anything more Denver than a 5K with your athletic pup, admiring street art, scorching heat, and drinking delish craft beer? We think not. Leash up your pup and head down to RiNo. Registration is $49.99 and includes an event T-shirt, two craft beer and seltzer tickets, and donation to Denver Rescue Mission.
2. Summer Concert Series
Your bark will get to boogie to the beat this Saturday as both Bruz Beers locations host FREE live music. Dakota Gray Band are bringing their bluegrass-folk music to Bruz Beers Midtown, while local rock act Matt Flaherty Band plays at Bruz Off Fax. Plus, it’s just a buck for a 4-ounce pour with purchase of a full draft.
Get in touch with your inner pup this Saturday when Colorado Pooper Scoopers hosts their 2nd annual Day with the Dogs, perfect for fur babes and kiddos alike. This FREE event features a doggy photo booth, face painting, food trucks, music, trainers, and more.
Ever wondered what your doggo is trying to tell you? Wish you could tell her how much she means to you? Check out this animal communication class hosted by the Healing Studio.
