Aspen Aerogels Presents: Downtown Paw Walk

STATESBORO, Ga. Feb. 20, 2024 – The Downtown Statesboro Development Authority will host its 10th annual Downtown Paw Walk presented by Aspen Aerogels on Friday, March 1 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the downtown dog park.

It’s time to celebrate with our furry friends at the Aspen Aerogels Paw Walk. All dog lovers are invited to hang out downtown to enjoy good music, good food, and a good time at the dog park located at 20 East Cherry Street. Every dog is welcome, no matter the size or age, to spend the evening with our community.

To show off just how amazing these dogs are, a costume competition will take place during the event. In order to participate in the contest, people must register at the event between 5:15 p.m. and 6 p.m. The contest will begin at 6:10 p.m., and winners will be announced at 7:30 p.m. Prizes, which are donated by local sponsors, will be rewarded in nine different categories including first, second, and third places for small dog, big dog, and most creative categories, as well as best behaved and cutest pup.

The Aspen Aerogels Paw Walk is free and open to the public. Fixing the Boro will have dogs available for adoption at the event. Other activities will include a DJ, bouncy house, vendors, and food trucks. “First Friday events are the perfect way to show everyone what downtown has to offer, and we love to see all the dogs dress up and have fun,” said Allen Muldrew, Executive Director of the Downtown Statesboro Development Authority.
