One of my favorite things to do during the summer is to go swimming. I'm pretty sure it's one of your family's favorite things, too.

But what about your dog? Does your dog love to jump in the pool or lake with you? If so, I have just the event for you.

Lubbock's popular K-9 Splashfest is scheduled for Saturday, August 11, 2018 from 1 - 5 p.m. This awesome event is being sponsored by Lubbock Parks and Recreation and happens at Montelongo Pool located inside Rogers Park at 3200 Bates Street.

There are several contests that your furry K-9 can compete in, including a swimsuit competition, retrieving contest and timed race. Awards will be given in each category.

There are just a few rules I need go over with you, and they are kind of important:

  • Dogs must be up to date on their rabies vaccination and have a current tag or certificate from a vet.
  • Dogs must be on a leash.
  • Aggressive dogs or female dogs in heat will not be permitted.

Admission for humans is $2.50 for adults and $2 for kids 17 or younger. Dogs GET IN FREE because this day is for them.

If you've been to K-9 Splashfest before, share your photos with us on Awesome 98's Facebook page.
