The theme for April is “Take me out to the mall game,” and dogs can participate in a lively baseball-themed costume contest (but don’t expect anyone to buy them some peanuts and Cracker Jack). The cost to participate is a $5 donation to the Gulf Coast Humane Society, and one lucky dog will earn the title of MVP (Most Valuable Pooch). Dogs and their owners can play other fun games, as well.
Yappy Hour runs from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, April 13 at Center Court.
Held on the second Friday of each month, Yappy Hour is the area's largest pet-friendly social hour, providing an evening of fun for pet lovers and their four-legged friends.
Live music will be presented by Ayla Lynn in Center Court, in addition to a bounce house, sidewalk chalk station and lawn games for guests to enjoy. Cru will present the beer and wine for the evening; all proceeds from beer purchases will be donated to the Gulf Coast Humane Society. Omaha Steaks will also present a “Doggone Good Deal” – $2 hot dogs and $1 water bottles, with proceeds going to the Gulf Coast Humane Society.
Throughout Yappy Hour, visitors will have an opportunity to stop by dog-friendly sponsor stations and meet adoptable dogs from the Gulf Coast Humane Society.
