Event offers dogs a chance to play and swim in the Outdoor Water Park
This year, for the first time ever, the Kingsport Aquatic Center is hosting a TWO-DAY Drool Party!
For the past 10 years the Kingsport Aquatic Center has ended its summer season by inviting dogs of all breeds and sizes to come down and enjoy an afternoon of running, jumping and playing in the toddler play area of outdoor water park.
“Since it’s our 10th year of hosting the Drool Party, we wanted to celebrate the milestone by offering people an extra day to bring their dogs down and enjoy a few hours in the pool,” said Aquatics Program Coordinator Madison Gump.
The Drool Party will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on September 9 and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on September 10.
Admission is $5 per dog and free to owners. Limit one dog per person, and the dogs’ handler must be over 18 and bring leashes with them. Your dogs must be up to date on all vaccines and vaccination records are required to register.
Dog-related vendors (groomers, boarding, treats, etc) will be on hand inside the facility, while food trucks will be parked in the parking lot for guests to enjoy.
