The Langhorne Rotary Club will be hosting its annual Langhorne Pet Fair and Family Fun Day this Saturday, Aug. 24. People are invited to bring their dogs and pets for a variety of exciting activities.
Anyone can come out from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. to see animals of all sizes on parade at the Mayor’s Playground. Additionally, WBCB 1490 AM will be broadcasting Pro Wrestling Weekly with Fearon Derry on location from noon until 1 p.m.
Pet Fair Chairperson David Carson says the day isn’t about competition or winning contests.
“It’s more of a leisurely stroll through vendors,” Carson said. “But we have a lot of activities for children that all free.”
Many of the vendors are pet related, like rescues, vet services, or selling pet pillows. A Pet Parade begins at 1:30 p.m., and all participants will receive ribbons
With a wide open space, the Mayor’s Playground is perfect for animals. Children and families can participate in pony rides, the petting zoo, and fun zone. Plus, there will be a section wth “Exotic Animals.”
Additionally, the Langhorne Rotary Club will have a tent, marked by a sign with the club’s insignia. Carson hopes seeing the sign will spur people to join for their local community.
“It’s just something so people know we’re around,” Carson said. “Just the reality of these service organizations and people are not taking the time to join them. It’s unfortunate, but we’re a very a good club.”
Raffle tickets will also be on offer at the Rotary tent. It will act as a small fundraiser to support the club in its mission of helping the community.
The Mayor’s Playground is located in Langhorne Borough at the corner of S. Pine Street (413) and E. Maple Avenue (213). Four main sponsors are funding the day, including The First National Bank and Trust Company of Newtown, Flower’s Mill Veterinary Hospital, K.E. Seifert, Inc., and Neshaminy Kids Club.
