Event Description: Join us for the Blessing of the Animals. All animals are welcome. We ask that dogs be on a leash, or in a safe travel kennel. Cats are welcome and we encourage them to be in a safe and calm travel carrier or arrangement. Animals include whatever you wish to bring like your horse, hedgehogs, pet snakes or Goldfish. The blessing will take place in our park, weather permitting. On October 4 or the Sunday closest to that date, people all over the world will be celebrating the feast day of the Patron Saint of Animals, Saint Francis of Assisi. It's customary that in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi's love for all creatures, animals are led to churches for a special ceremony called the “Blessing of the Animals.”
