Hiking for Hounds

Sunday, October 19, 2014


It’s time for Klehm’s annual celebration of our best friend – the dog.  Bring your costumed canine friends to spend a day enjoying and exploring our entire 155 acres of gardens and grounds.  At 1pm that day, dog owners are encouraged to enter their furry friends into a costume contest.  Prizes will be awarded, and everyone will be able to take home good memories and pictures.  In addition, there will be vendors with pet-friendly products to visit and an adoption event featuring local advocacy organizations.  Are you looking for a canine companion?  There will be plenty looking for forever homes that day.

Costume Contest Categories: Cutest, Funniest, Most Creative, Scariest, Best Impersonation of Another Animal, Best Owner/Pet Costume Combo.

Food available for purchase from AnJan’s Eats – Cider, Brats, Hot Dogs…
