Sarge’s 12th Annual Downtown Dog Walk is Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017 at a new start time — 9 a.m. in Downtown Waynesville. The Dog Walk is one of the most popular Sarge’s events, with lots of happy dogs and their humans.
What will the route be?
It begins at the Haywood County Court House on Main Street in Waynesville, NC. We make a circle that is Main Street, then right on Depot, left on Montgomery, left on Church, then left again on North Main Street. The police stop traffic on Main Street. And we get to march right back to the court house.
What are start/end times?
Day of event registration, Saturday, Aug. 5, begins at 8 a.m. at the Historic Haywood County Courthouse lawn. The Dog Walk begins at 9 a.m. sharp. The actual walk is only 15 minutes. The fun contests begin after the walk, and we expect to be finished by 11 a.m., to avoid the summer heat of the day.
Where will contest judging be done?
On the court house steps in front of the court house.
Who will be the judges?
Eddie Foxx & Sharon Green from 99.9 Kiss Country and a few specially chosen Waynesville locals.
What will be the contest categories?
Of course, most money collected! Also – best dressed, best trick, and best tail-wagger. The contests are fairly short, but a lot of fun.
Will adoptable dogs be identified as such?
Yes! They will be wearing “adopt me” bandanas and they will each walk across the stage for a few moments.
How do volunteers raise money?
They can collect funds on our pledge sheet. Anyone collecting $20 or more receives a free T-shirt.
