Enjoy the Dog Days of Summer at Camas First Friday

The “Dog Days of Summer” First Friday in Downtown Camas returns on July 7th and this year the festivities will be in Mardi Gras style!

Ever wonder what that phrase means?

The “Dog Days of Summer” is the sultry part of the summer when the Dog Star rises at the same time as the sun.

So, of course, this is the perfect time to celebrate pooches and their best friends.

All around downtown Camas, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm there will be doggie activities, vendors, live Zydeco music by The Mudbugs, kids’ crafts with a dog theme and so much more.

At 6:00 pm don’t miss the Talent Contest and Dog and Owner Look-alike Contest, then at 7:00 pm, get ready to walk or cheer at the new Camas “Barkus” Doggie Costume Parade.

Click here for details about both the contest or the parade. No cost to enter.

The West Columbia Gorge Humane Society will be on hand that evening to help educate the community about dog adoption and will also have some fun activities planned.

So bring yourself and your favorite pooch (leashes required) dressed in your Mardi Gras best to enjoy a night out with your dog in Downtown Camas.
