The event, which benefits the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast, will be held on Saturday, March 25, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Memorial Park, 300 SE Ocean Blvd., in Stuart. Prior to that, 5K and 10K races will be held and the races will begin at 8 a.m.
The Mutt March festival is free.
This also gives attendees an opportunity to shop at the flea-'less' market and participate in the ever-competitive canine costume contest with local celebrity judges. Prizes will be awarded to the funniest, cutest, most original and best overall. Dogs also will have the opportunity to run a lure course and guests can make memories with their furry friends at the humane society’s photo booth.
The humane society is partnering with the City of Stuart and Students4H2O as they host WaterFest, so attendees get to enjoy two free events at the same time and place so it will be a day filled with activities. On the other side of the park, WaterFest and Students4H2O will educate guests about the benefits of water conservation awareness and environmental stewardship. Various exhibitors and school groups will provide activities, demonstrations and contests.
