The Animal Protective Association of Missouri hosts its 23rd Carnival on Sunday, October 6 at Tilles Park in Ladue from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and this year the festival promises to be bigger and better than ever. In addition to the games, contests and prizes everyone knows and loves, Carnival goers will find more APA goodies, more adoptable animals, more activities for kids and more games for pooches!
Test your Schnauzer’s snack-catching abilities in the popular Cheese Ball Toss, show off your Airedale’s agility in The Maze, or enter the face only a dog mother could love in this year’s new, celebrity-judged “Ugliest” Dog Contest! The Purina Incredible Dog Team will also be on site to wow the crowd with amazing feats of canine athleticism and acrobatics.
Canine Carnival, the APA’s biggest event of the year, is sponsored by Purina One® and helps raise much-needed funds for the shelter’s pets and programs. Admission is free, and tickets to the games can be purchased at the event.
