Every year, Humane Society of Blue Ridge hosts Paws in the Park, an event that invites our community’s pet owners and animal lovers to participate in a variety of events, including a pet parade, costume contest, pet photos, and our main attraction: the Paws in the Park 5K, a USATF-certified 5K race course that runs through the streets of downtown Blue Ridge. In 2015, the Mutt Mile was introduced, a shorter course perfect for walkers and young ones.
The latest Paws In The Park was held October 15, 2016 from 10 AM to 2 PM. Special thanks to our sponsors, volunteers, and participants who made it possible! Details on next year’s event to be announced at a later date.
