  • Adams Morgan Main Streets is a fine organization (the planners of this event), though their staff has been plagued with problems. Lisa Duperier, the former Director, is in the middle of a legal battle, accused of swindling millions of dollars
    And the former BID director, Andrew Davis, was recently convicted of assault and spent some time in jail.
    I hope the new director has a good head on her shoulders!

  • One of the organizations I volunteer for (Hill Hounds) participated in this event last year and we had so much fun. It was earlier last year, on that freakishly hot Saturday in April, but everyone still had fun. A couple of the tents had doggy pools for the pooches to cool off in.

    It’s really a fun event for you and your pup!

  • WONDERFUL EVENT! Interesting program with items for adults and kids. Arty for Ever – Michael Auger has great artwork. Picked up some fun items and also shopped over at Tibet Shop and Toro Mata.

  • Canine Freestyle is a sport like obedience trials and agility. Look forward to seeing the dog dancing teams in person. Not aware of performances before in DC. My dog should win Best Kisser.

  • There’s usually a doggie wading pool and shade tents. The prizes are fun and varied, and Adams Morgan Main Street does small raffles during the day so that we can win a prize even if we do not win a contest. Mr. U Street anonymous, we have found Main Street to be well run, especially for a volunteer-dependent group, and Lisa Duperier is a volunteer who has never been paid.

  • Even though my dog Mazie didn’t win the cutest puppy contest, it was a fun event!

    As a volunteer for Washington Animal Rescue League, I was called upon to be a judge for several of the dog awards. It was a lot of fun, but even our two pups who came from Kuwait were too hot and we left early.

  • Super fun and interesting. Saw a mobile grooming spa for 1st time, and the Dog Whisperer of Maryland was really good. Clark Ray who helped get us the dog parks in DC was one of the judges. Amazing there were hundreds of people there in spite of the heat, but the cloudiness helped.
