The Dogs are Back on the Plaza! It’s Gateway’s Second Annual “Yappy Hour: Dog Days of Summer”, featuring a Bailey & Bella fashion show with adoptable pups, pet-themed vendors and food, doggie pools, a Save Ohio Pets raffle, and some of the BEST animal advocacy and rescue groups in Central Ohio, with their available dogs and cats! So wag your tail down to the Gateway – University District, where your furry friend is always welcome.
This rain or shine event is brought to you by Pet Valu – US, BrewDog USA, World of Beer, Natural-State Fine Wine and Craft Beers and CD102.5.

2PM: Brew Dog Pup Parade and Yappy Hour Kick-Off
This short parade will start at the front of the plaza and do a quick jot over 10th Ave., up to Chittenden, and along High St. back to the plaza entrance. It will be led by the BrewDog Drum Major. You may walk your own dog in the parade OR select the rescue dog of your choice – all we ask is for a $5 contribution to participate. Proceeds will benefit Save Ohio Pets, and everyone who partakes will get a little token courtesy of BrewDog! PLEASE ARRIVE BY 1:45PM to participate.
