The North America Diving Dogs (NADD) will be attending the cluster again this year. Diving dogs is a canine sport in which dogs are enticed to run the length of a dock and leap as far out into the water as possible to compete for height or distance. They’re motivated to fly with a prized toy, which is thrown just out of reach in order to help them keep their momentum and get the best launch angle possible. Spectators can watch dogs test their extreme water skills in this exciting event.
All judging will be indoors under air conditioning with food and merchandise vendors available.
Spectator entry for this fun-filled event is only $5 per person with a $5 parking fee per vehicle. Children under 12 are free. 8am -5pm
