K-9 Splashfest 2016K-9 Splashfest - Montelongo Pool

Calling all dogs!  The 12th Annual K-9 Splasfest will be held Sunday, August 13, 2017 from 1-5 pm. Sponsored by Parks and Recreation, this popular event allows people and their dogs to swim together in Montelongo Pool. Dogs can compete in three different contests: Swimsuit Competition, Retrieving Contest (from the side or off diving board), and 25-Yard Timed Race. Prizes will be awarded in each event. Dogs must be up-to-date on their rabies vaccination and have with them a 2017 rabies tag or certificate from a veterinarian. Dogs must be on leash, and aggressive dogs or dogs in heat are not allowed. Door prizes and concessions will be available. City of Lubbock Animal Services will host a booth at this event and will be providing microchips for dogs! Microchips are the best way to ensure that a lost pet is reunited with its owner. Cost for microchip is $10 per dog!

Admission fees for participants are $2.50 for adults and $2 for youth 17 or younger. Dogs get in free! Montelongo Pool is located at 3200 Bates St.
