Stop by to catch an array of demonstrations from service animals for people with disabilities to police and rescue dogs plus vendors selling everything from homemade dog biscuits and animal portraits to dog washes and Italian food. The first 100 pooches to stop by can get a free microchip from Freedom Service Dogs vet, who will be on hand with her mobile hospital. There will be events for the dogs, too, of course, including races and more. The Festival of the Bastardino is free; visit www.freedomservicedogs.org or call 303-922-6231.
