Upcoming Events!

**Mutt Strutt has been postponed until Nov. 1 due to Hurricane Hanna**

Allover Art has a lot of fun events coming up! I've added a new section to the right side titled "Upcoming Events." The next event I will be at is next Saturday, September 6th, from 9am-12pm at Wake County Historic Oak View Park. The event is called the Mutt Strutt Dog Walk. There is a one-mile dog-walking path, dozens of exhibitors and vendors (like yours truly), raffles, contests, demonstrations, and some adorable adoptable dogs! Rabies vaccinations and microchips will be offered as well. Here's the schedule of events, courtesy of the Mutt Strutt website.

The Mutt Strutt Dog Walk is a kick-off event in support of World Rabies Day, September 28, 2008. It is the Wake County Animal Care, Control & Adoption Center's annual fundraiser. This year, all proceeds will benefit the Center's Animal Foster Program. The program provides temporary homes for dogs and cats that are too young or sick to be adopted. Funds will support the provision of medical care, supplies and food for the foster animals.

I hope to see you out there! :)
