Pet show weekend at Fort Knox

PROSPECT — On Saturday, Aug. 27, and Sunday, Aug. 28, the Friends of Fort Knox will host their third annual Pet Show weekend.

This is a fun event that does not focus on specific pet breeds, but has whimsical contest categories that include best pet costume, looks like owner, best pet trick, cutest, ugliest and most exotic pet.

Saturday, Aug. 27, will be for dogs only, while Sunday, Aug. 28, is for all other pets. Registration is at 10 a.m. and the shows begin at 11 on both days.

On Sunday, all other pets will have company as the Pony Express petting zoo will be set up nears the Fort Visitor Center. A wide variety of fun animals will be on hand to be petted and fed.

Registration for your pet may be done in advance by visiting the event page on the Friends’ website,

There is no fee to enter your pet into the show, but regular fort admission fees apply. Ribbons will be awarded to winners in each pet show category.
