    Default Looking for something to do in Michigan this weekend?

    Hi All,

    If you haven’t got plans this weekend and live in Michigan (or surrounding) there is a fun “Dog Bowl” in Frankenmuth, Michigan. We’ve gone the last 5 or 6 years and it’s a FREE dog and kid friendly event. They have all kind of events (that we just watch), lots of vendors, and hundreds (maybe thousands) of all kinds of dogs walking around. They have a small “dog park” set up in the middle for potty and they have kiddie pools with hoses for the dogs to cool off on hot days.

    Frankenmuth is a replica of a Bavarian town that has small shops and wonderful restaurants. For this event the shops open their doors to dogs (bully air conditioning ) and of course all of the events that are offered…. Below are links to information.

    Website: Home | Dog Bowl Fun (click under events and description of events for information on each)

    *We stayed at a hotel a few years ago, but I had to make reservations 7 months in advance to get a pet friendly room. So it may be hard to find a pet friendly hotel in the area.
    * One more thing… If you come get there early… by 11:00 the closer parking is full and you will have to walk about a block. You’ll find that some people make a day of it grilling by their car or doing a picnic lunch…

    Has anybody else been to this?

    I have been to this event! I had a booth for my dog food several years ago. We had a great time! I love Frankenmuth! The best Christmas store in the world is there!

    I will have to put this on the calendar for next year. Heck...maybe EBN should set up a booth at this event @bullmama .

    Well that is a 600 mile trip for the gang and if we were headed that way there is a bunch of construction ongoing.

    It absolutely looks like a good time and we will have to put this in as a bookmark for future reference. Thanks for sharing @NicosMom .
