Wags n Whiskers Kids & Kritters

If there was ever a day to invite your friends and family to Montrose, it’s May 1st, 2016 for Wags n Whiskers, Kids & Kritters. The event goes from 9AM – 2PM and is guaranteed fun for the whole family (furry kids included)!

In conjunction with the Montrose Harvest Market, this year’s festivities include a Wild Wonders Exotic Petting Zoo, Kids Fun Zone, “Early” Cinco de Mayo, First Responders Area, Young Entrepreneurs, Taste of Montrose and the Wags-N-Whiskers Walk for the Glendale Humane Society!

Anderson’s Pet Shop (2218 Honolulu Avenue) is where our Wags-N-Whiskers walk begins. Registration opens at 9am and the walk kicks off at 10am. Bring your furry friends to participate. This is a great opportunity for you and your pets to get out and enjoy the community. All proceeds benefit the Glendale Humane Society.

The Wild Wonders Exotic Petting Zoo brings unique creatures to the middle of Honolulu Avenue with an educational, hands-on show. Show times are 10:30AM, 11:30AM, and 12:30PM. Following the 11:30AM show, there will be a children’s fashion show featuring clothes from It Takes a Village, Revelation Tops, Village Boutique and more!

In the Kids Fun Zone, there will be awesome bounce-able attractions, a climbing wall, petting zoo and hand-led pony rides.

Meet the Glendale Police S.W.A.T. team, local fire department, Rescue and CV Sheriff’s personnel in the First Responders Arena.

At the Taste of Montrose, you’ll be able to sink your taste buds in a delectable array of flavors from our many diverse restaurants. All ticket sales benefit Crescenta Valley High Prom Plus.

The Young Entrepreneurs will be displaying handcrafted, locally sourced goods for sale near Montrose Travel, and there will be live music from the Trio Capri mariachi band to kick off the week for Cinco de Mayo.

This is a wonderful time to experience Montrose with your family, friends (and furry friends included). Montrose is one of the friendliest dog towns in California. As an added bonus, many of our shops and restaurants will be open for business. Take a stroll along the scenic Honolulu Avenue and and bring your appetite!
