It’s almost time to let those dogs out! Boo-le-Bark on the Boulevard is back. On Oct. 2, the day of Historic Athens Porchfest, the annual dog parade will begin at the former Jittery Joe’s Coffee Roaster at 425 Barber St. Onlookers can catch a lively procession of costumed canines as they make their way past porches alive with music up Nantahala Avenue, across Beulah Avenue, down Boulevard onto Barber Street, and finally back to the former roaster. A costume contest will also be held to determine the Grand Marshall of the event. This year’s theme is “Georgia on Our Minds!” and winners in certain categories will receive prizes from various local businesses. So, tell your pup to bring their A-game, and tell yourself to bring them plenty of water!
