Is Weston Going To the Dogs?

weston Calling all canines! Weston is throwing its First Annual Pooch Parade this Saturday, May 16, 2015, from noon to 4 p.m. at the Weston Town Green, 1 Townhouse Road. Come by to watch all the local dogs strut their stuff in front of a roster of “celebrity” judges there to recognize Man’s Best Friend in a wide variety of categories, both serious and silly. If you are a dog lover, this is an event not to be missed! It is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Weston and Wayland, and is sure to be tons of fun for the whole family.
