RED BANK: A WALK OF FAME FOR LOCAL MUTTS

dog-days-072215-1-500x375-3674826All Dogs Go to Hollywood  as Red Bank RiverCenter presents the latest of its canine-friendly Dog Days events Tuesday evening.

rb-dog-days-073013-6-220x165-5900472At a time of year when Hollywood separates its summer blockbusters from its disappointing box-office dogs, the Tinseltown-canine connection is being celebrated in style on the streets of Red Bank, as the latest in the summer series of Dog Days promotions returns on Tuesday evening.

Hosted once again by Red Bank RiverCenter and the Borough of Red Bank, the 6-to-9 p.m. event is presented under the theme All Dogs Go to Hollywood, with a strolling array of dog-focused vendors, pup-positive downtown businesses and informational displays given a red-carpet twist: guest-star canines (and their human personal assistants) are invited to dress up and walk that carpet for a free photo op worthy of a big-time movie premiere, fun props included.

Monmouth Street will be closed to traffic between Broad Street and Maple Avenue beginning at 5 p.m. to accommodate dozens of vendors featuring an assortment of pet treats, dog bandanas and clothing, toys, collars, leashes and more. Among the participants will be Hunter, of the K9 unit of the Red Bank Police Department; Paint a Tee (customizable dog wear); artist Eileen Kennedy (custom pet portraits) and Alex and Ani (a “bangle bar”), as well as returning favorites Fins & Feathers, Dog Bandanas by Karen, and Kim Levin Photography. Also featured will be fun giveaways, water stations, and the opportunity to stake out a streetside table, mix and mingle with a variety of dog friends and neighbors.

Pet rescues and charities will also be on site to promote pet adoptions and awareness of their causes including the SPCA, Associated Humane Society, Save US Pets, Paws for a Cause, Home Free Animal rescue and more. Co-sponsored by Red Bank Veterinary Hospital and Purina, the Dog Days event returns for a season-finale edition on the evening of September 1. Event organizers ask that owners please leash all dogs (no retractable type leashes). For the safety of other dogs, pet owners are advised to make sure their animal’s vaccines are current. Take it  here for additional information, and keep it tuned to redbankgreen for any additional weather-related updates.

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
