The Great American Pet Festival is coming to the Albany area on Saturday, September 28. It will be at the Shenendehowa United Methodist Church on Route 146 in Clifton Park from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. The church is located right across from the Shenendehowa school campus.
The festival is an annual all-day event for pet lovers and their pets. It is a showcase for shelters and rescue groups who have dogs and cats to adopt. It is a fun day for kids by featuring clowns, bounce, ponies, petting zoo, and display of exotic creatures. It is also a fun "fashion" contest for "couples" (owner and pet) who dress up and compete for valuable merchant-donated prizes.
Highlights include food provided by Fast Trax, upwards of 50 vendors, pony rides sponsored by SmartEarly Learning Centers, a HEELDOG Training Demonstration, blessing of the pets by pastor Alan Delamater, and a Grand March of Pets. Click here for more details.
Other features and exhibitors include Greg and Bum-B's Jumpers Cynthia and the Zing-a-Gram, Aunt Sheries Reptiles, Barb Bird, The Great Clown, Christine Neely, Official Roaming Photography, and Ron and the Albany Devils Mascot.
There will be a raffle of pet prizes donated by merchants. The event is sponsored by Seaglass logowear, Toyota of Clifton Park, and CE.
The cost is $5 per adult. Children are free. Free parking is available on site.
