In a creative twist to its free outdoor showing of the family-friendly movie, “Zookeeper,” at the Jug Tavern Park on June 21, the Winder Downtown Development Authority is planning a “pooch party.”
The fun starts at 6 with free inflatables for kids, music and food vendors at the park, which is off East Athens Street. Doggie registration for the pet parade, contests — “longest tongue” and “best singer” among them — is $5 per dog. Pet owners also are asked to bring a bag of dry dog or cat food to donate to Pup & Cat Co.
The free movie will start at dusk after the pooch party. Bring blankets and lawn chairs. For details, go to winderdowntown.com.
