Area residents are invited to attend a "Kids and Tailwaggers" fun run and dog walk on Saturday, with proceeds benefiting the Boys and Girls Clubs of North Central Texas.
The event will kick off at 9 a.m. at Sycamore Bend Park in Hickory Creek. Attendees can take part in a 5K or a 1-mile dog walk along Lewisville Lake, but they must sign up beforehand and pay a $35 registration fee.
Children can visit the Kid's Zone and take part in a costume contest, bounce house or face painting. Dogs also are welcome to join in on the fun with paw painting, dog cake walk and fetch contest. Low-cost vaccinations also will be available on site.
Vendors will sell running and pet products at the event while local shelters will showcase dogs that are available for adoption. Hungry patrons also can purchase items from food trucks.
