This weekend, you can enjoy the nice weather and check out the annual Fast and Furriest 5K fundraiser, benefitting The Animal Foundation.

Here to tell us all about it is marketing coordinator Brianna Zambrano, plus a special guest!

The Fast & Furriest 5K Fundraiser and Festival will be held on Saturday, Nov. 18 at Sunset Park. The family-friendly outdoor event will begin at 9 a.m. with a 5K run on the trail and a leisurely 1-mile walk around the pond.

The festival will run from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. with fun attractions like the Barketplace and local pet-oriented vendors, adoptable dogs, food trucks, a beer garden, and more.

The first 100 pets can receive free microchips beginning at 10 a.m. Subsequent microchips will be just $5 each while supplies last.

The festival is free to attend, however, there are entry fees for those looking to register for the run and walk. For $5K runners, it costs $40. For one-mile walkers, the cost is $20. Those looking to participate can register online.

Sunset Park is located at 2601 East Sunset Road.
