Thanks to a reader for sending Day of the Dog At Congressional Cemetery [1801 E Street, SE], August 30, 2014, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.:

“Day of the Dog is an annual festival held at Congressional Cemetery in celebration of man’s best friend! On this day, the cemetery is open to all dogs, not just K-9 Corps members.

The 2013 event included activities for both pups and their people, including contests, raffles, games, demonstrations, and more. Pet vendors and services from the D.C. area were in attendance, as were local pet shelters with dogs and cats available for adoption! Live music was provided by Charlottesville band Red and the Romantics.

Admission is FREE, and tickets will be available for puchase for activities and the raffle.”
