WESTFIELD, NJ — Bring your family and pets to Downtown Westfield for the town's first-ever “Dog Days of Summer” event on Sunday, Aug. 12,  from noon until 2 p.m.

It’s the third event in the Downtown Westfield Corporation’s new “Second Sundays” series, which features a different themed event on the second Sunday of each month. (Previous events were Yoga on Quimby and Christmas in July.)

The event will feature a pet parade, pet portraits, animal adoptions, toys and more. There will be pools in which the animals can cool off and Quimby Street will be closed for the event. Leashes will be required.
