Village of Merrick Park celebrates doggy days, pooches on parade

Village of Merrick Park knows it’s a dogs world out there. What better way to lift the spirits than to kick off The Doggy Days of Summer event series. Throughout the summer, Village of Merrick Park invites dog owners to bring their leashed pooches to the pet friendly shopping destination for an afternoon dedicated to man’s best friend. The summer series kicks off on Sunday, July 12 with a Pooch-A-Palooza of doggy-centric action including a dog parade in The Garden which will begin promptly at 3:00 PM. Proud dog owners will be able to show off their beloved furry friends and three winners will be selected to receive prizes including a $100 gift card to the center. Every dog that signs up to participate in the parade will also receive a gift to wear. 

Village of Merrick Park Doggy Days of Summer will take place every Sunday from 2:00 to 6:00 PM through August. In celebration of Fido, every Sunday dog owners are invited to have their pooches preen and pose for a framed photo to take home with any $25 purchase from the center. Additionally, guests will enjoy special treats and in-store promotions from participating shops and restaurants including Adolofo Dominguez, Applemint, C’est Bon Café, Juicy Couture and Villagio.
