If you haven’t already marked your calendars, it’s time to do so! We have two great October events scheduled for Exploration Park at Mountain’s Edge.
Fifth Annual Family, Fur & Fun Festival:
The Fifth Annual Family, Fur & Fun Festival from the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NSPCA) is Saturday, Oct. 8. The Festival focuses on humane education and fun for the entire family, including companion animals. Well-behaved dogs are welcome, but should be leashed and comfortable with crowds.
The Family, Fur & Fun festival features educational, interactive and service booths and activities for the whole family, including pet adoptions, animal massages, Animal Hero Badge, making rabbit toys, naming new animals at NSPCA, raffle prizes, refreshments, and great deals from Mountain’s Edge builders.
There is no cost to attend, but proceeds support low-cost spay, neuter and vaccination services; shelter and adoption of animals; and educational programs. For information, visit familyfurandfun.com, or call (702) 444-3713.
