Join us for a day of fun filled activities for you and your dog. We’re kicking off the day at 2pm with a “Mutt Strutt” or mini parade starting at the Taj Ma-Hound and ending at the Solarium. Since it is October costumes are welcome and there will be a costume contest immediately following the parade with prizes for Scariest, Goofiest, Prettiest, Best Group Costume and Most Original. Prizes will include gift certificates from local businesses, doggie art work, pet portraits and more. Get your dog Microchipped by Animal Action Rescue. Adopt a new family member from one of our animal rescue organizations. Learn some extremely valuable training tips from the professional trainers at Frogs to Dogs. They’ll be conducting a question and answer session throughout the event as well as introducing their Emergency Animal Transport Vehicle, the first of its kind in GA. Check out our marketplace for cool new collars and leashes, delicious dog treats, free information from local non profit organizations, art, doggie photography and lots more. And we even have fun events for the kids including face painting and dog bowl decorating. Admission is FREE and all donations for beer and Dogtoberfest activities are to support the Oakhurst dog park. Sincerely Krista Aversano Taj Ma-Hound 404-377-9220 Bakery

Oakhurst Historical Walking Tour, October 11
Are you curious about the history of our neighborhood? A lot has happened here, going back to the Civil War. And two neighborhood residents periodically lead a walking tour to let us know more about it. The next one will be Sunday, October 11, beginning at 3 p.m. It will begin in front of the One Step at a Time store, at 650-B East Lake Boulevard. Please note that the rain date has been moved up to the following Sunday, October 18. The tours are led by Jack Krost and Charles Cope, who owns the store. And since Halloween is coming up, they’ll also tell us about a few ghosts that haunt our neighborhood. The tours are free. If you’re interested, just send Jack an RSVP at jkrost@aol.com.
