The Animal Hospital of Nicholasville, Jessamine County Animal Care & Control and Nicholasville-Jessamine County Parks & Recreation are presenting the annual Barks & Rec Day event, featuring pony rides, a petting zoo, vendors, a prize wheel, animal trivia and food vendors. Those who bring their canine pals will also be able to take part in The Fast and the Furriest 5k Cross-Country Run, The Fun Run 3k and The Pooch Plunge.

Are your canine tastes in the shorter order? Don’t dare miss the popular Dachshund Derby!
