Thousands of people came out to Woofstock, the Great Chandler Dog Walk, Saturday at Tumbleweed Park.
The festival is designed to be a fun time for families and their dogs. Those who attended took part in the walks of various distances or the pet parade or watched demonstrations of dog agility events or Flyball, a type of dog relay race. There also were vendors of pet services and products, food for sale and music to complement the good times.
Festival organizers are hoping dog adoption becomes a bigger aspect. Representatives of more than 20 dog-rescue groups were on hand at the park with a variety of pets waiting for adoption.
