2nd Annual Wag-O-Ween

Story and photography by Jimbob Baird

For the second year, Abbi’s Barkery of Franklin hosted the Wag-O-Ween charity event at the historic Downtown Franklin Square on October 20. The festive and colorful fundraising event brought out dozens of humans with their canine friend or family member dressed up and ready to win a very competitive costume contest held on the bandstand. The excitement lasted most of the day and included craft and food vendors, training demonstrations, a play area, free dog treats, a pie eating contest, and more!

Champion Pet foods Dogstar Kitchens was a major sponsor of the event and proceeds from the event will go towards the future Dog Park, the Animal Shelter. Abbi’s Barkery is a non-profit organization helping children with Epilepsy, they sell a variety of dog prepared and custom treats and are located at 109 W. Cedar St. They may be reached at 615-483-1641.
