Furmont Days

What better way to spend a nice Saturday than with your dog or cat and a bunch of their friends?
Furmont Days is held the the Guardian Hose Company Carnival  Grounds on Main Street and features fun for everyone!  Doggie limbo, musical chairs, waggiest tail contest, dress up contest, demonstrations and well, just a dog gone good time for anyone on four feet or even just two.


Furmont Days 2011

Thanks to everyone that attended Furmont Days! Despite the rain we had a great turnout for Furmont Days. There were demonstrations by Deputy Sheriff Eyler and his dog as well as the Frisbee Dogs.  Many pets entered and won ribbons while their human friends cheered them on.
