On Sunday, June 12, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Chestnut Hill Business District and Weavers Way Co-op join forces to host Petapalooza, a free, family-friendly celebration of our animal friends, with various activities for humans and their pets along Germantown Avenue.
Guests can treat their furry pals to a day in the refreshing doggie pools; try their luck with various Petapalooza raffles; sample delicious pet treats; and put their best nose forward for a pet caricaturist. Adventurous dog owners will have the chance to test their dog’s skills by taking them through a parkour course. Guests can also shop at pet-focused vendors, including Weavers Way Pet Store, Bon Appetite, Queenie’s Pets, Fairmount Barks, and the Chestnut Hill Cat Clinic.
For guests looking to adopt their next best friend, pet rescue and adoption agencies, including the Philly Bully Team, Brenda’s Cat Rescue, Jax’s Labrador Retriever Rescue, German Shepherd Rescue of Southeast Pennsylvania, Blind Dog Rescue Alliance, French Bulldog Village, and ACCT will be on location with animals looking for their forever homes.
There will also be plenty of activities for the entire family while they stroll Germantown Avenue and enjoy the over 200 shops and restaurant options. In addition to the shops and businesses in Chestnut Hill, visitors can browse over a dozen Petapalooza vendors and have their faces painted. Adults can look forward to “Yappy Hour” specials throughout the day and dine with their pets at participating establishments. Order a “Puppy Love” from Chestnut Hill Brewing Company, “Barkarita” from Chestnut Hill Grill, or a “Salty Chihuahua” from El Poquito. To find the latest list of specials, please click HERE.
