This Woofstock post is dedicated to those Cheapsters who talk about their pets as if they were their own kids. As both of us here at Indianapolis on the Cheap are dog owners, we’re right there with you and understand that a pet is more than just an animal. Our beloved canines and felines (and other more exotic pets) are members of the family, and that’s why you won’t want to miss two of Hamilton County’s biggest pet events taking place simultaneously this weekend.
Dog Day Afternoon lasts from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 24 at the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater in Fishers (behind the Town Hall). Dog Day Afternoon began not only as a celebration of the relationship between pets and their people, but also as an educational opportunity for the community to learn more about responsible pet ownership. For that reason, the proceeds raised by Dog Day Afternoon benefit the Humane Society for Hamilton County.
You can check out plenty of fun activities and sights, including the Parade of Paws and the Silly Safari’s Kids Tent. The biggest event of the day, however, is Woofstock. Combining Woofstock with Dog Day Afternoon makes this Saturday a must-see. Woofstock is about what it sounds like – a concert for pet-lovers. Here’s the schedule of performers on the Don Hinds Ford Woofstock Stage:
- 2:00 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. – Jester Kings
- 3:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. – Born Again Floozies
- 4:00 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. – Naptown Boogie
- 5:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. – 10th of Never
- 6:00 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. – Whitney Erin
