Love dogs? Love football? The two are made for each other at Dog-Harmony’s “Love and Football” event from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 12 at Grand Boulevard.
To kick off Super Bowl LVI weekend, dress up your dog in a favorite football team’s uniform and advance down the field in Grand Park. For a $10 entry fee, you’ll be the “receiver” of a photograph and have a chance to score prizes in two weight categories for Best Dressed, Most Creative and Most Enthusiastic.
Plus, what would a football party be without beer and food? Dog-Harmony Ale from Destin Brewery will be available and JC’s Gourmet will be serving Somethin’ Snappy smoked snapper dip, Poppin’ Pimento cheese and Jommin’ Jalapeños candied jalapeño garnish. You also can check out brand-new cars powered by Step One Automotive Group.
