Boonton, New Jersey
June 3, 2016
The threat of rain didn’t keep the tight-knit community of Boonton, New Jersey away from turning out for the ribbon cutting ceremony in celebration of the annual Dog Days of Summer. This wonderful summer-season event runs from June 3rd though September 5th, where over 100 beautiful dog sculptures designed by local artists and neighborhood students are displayed prominently at the entry of several businesses along Main Street. In addition to celebrating the local artistry throughout the community, the summer-standing event serves to raise money and awareness for two local animal rescue shelters, Eleventh-Hour Rescue and Mount Pleasant Animal Shelter. These terrific organizations strive to protect animals from death row kill shelters, while seeking loving families for the homeless pets. Visit the links for more information.
So if you’re in the Boonton, New Jersey area this summer and you’re up for experiencing some beautiful artistry, take a stroll up and down Main Street, seek our some smile-inducing canines and visit some local stores along the way.
