Well-behaved dogs will be available to kiss — for a donation to Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation — May 13 at the Haywood Square block party.

The merchants of Haywood Square in Waynesville will hold a family-friendly block party from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday, May 13.

“Bring your friends and family to enjoy the festivities,” said The Dog House co-owner Felisha Yon. “We’re setting up a canine kissing booth with well-behaved dogs available for a kiss — for a donation to benefit Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation.”

The Haywood Square block party gives families additional activities close to the Whole Bloomin’ Thing festival, which will be held that day in Frog Level. In addition to the canine kissing booth, the Haywood Square block party will have a children’s craft area, face painting, music, a bounce house and craft vendors.

“The Dog House will give a free goody bag to the first 150 customers at the block party,” Yon said. “There will be chances to win baskets in a drawing, plus big sales.”

The Dog House is at 304 N. Haywood St., in Waynesville. For information, call 828-456-3753 or visit www.thedoghousewaynesville.com.
