San Francisco’s Duboce Park is one of the city’s best havens for off leash dogs and it is also the location for San Francisco’s DogFest each April.
Dog Fest is a yearly event that benefits McKinley Elementary School, a K-5 public school in the Castro and also offers some of the best contests for you and your dog to be apart of.
This year’s event will be held from 11 AM – 4 PM and features a dog costume costume contest, as well as contests for ‘Best Tail,’ ‘Best Trick,’ ‘Best Mutt, ‘Best Ears,’ Best Lap Dog,’ and of course the ‘Most Openly Corrupt Best-In-Show’.
The winner of each category plus anyone who wants to donate $50 to the elementary school can enter into the final contest. The corruption is all in good fun and about raising money. The openly corrupt best-in-show also features an all-star cast of San Francisco judges like The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Senator Scott Wiener, Supervisor London Breed, and the founder of Three Twins Ice Cream, Neil Gottleib.
Register your dog now at Mckinleyschool.org to take part in the fun next weekend.
