Man’s best friend enjoyed a modern-day Woodstock at Riverfront Park in Harrisburg on Sunday. “Woofstock” welcomed dogs of all sizes to take part in a groovy day of peace, love, music, fun and drool. The annual event, hosted by the Central Pennsylvania Animal Alliance, includes a variety of activities including live entertainment, food and games. The - visitors also took part in a pet costume contest, enjoyed canine ice cream and search and rescue demonstrations.
“Woofstock raises thousands of dollars for our spay and neuter programs and spaying neutering really is the basis of what we do, it’s a cornerstone for addressing the overpopulation of animals in the area,” says Patricia Hippler, Publicity Chair, Animal Alliance.
Jon Provost, who played the role of Timmy in the TV series “Lassie” also took part in the festivities, meeting fans and signing autographs.
