Shake Off the Heat at a Marathon County Dog-Gone Pool Party

Written by Katie Rosenberg


Dogs of all breeds and sizes “let their fur down” in June at the first Dog-Gone Pool Party of the 2017 summer season.

Canine enthusiasts brought their four-legged friends to the Marathon County Splash Pad to enjoy some off-leash time — running through sprinklers and dodging water cannons.

If you and your dog missed the June party, don’t worry! There are two Dog-Gone Pool Party opportunities left this summer:

  • Monday, July 31
  • Sunday, August 13

The party starts at 5:30 p.m. and goes until 8:00 p.m.

All it takes to join in the fun is $5 and proof of current vaccinations. All the money raised goes toward reduced-cost pool passes and swimming lessons for children and families who need financial assistance.
