Freddy’s Bar (627 5th Ave.) will be hosting its 4th annual doggy fashion show this Saturday, July 15, from 5 to 9pm on 5th Ave. between 17th and 18th streets. The streets will be closed (to cars) for the momentous occasion. The show will feature a red-carpet entrance for the puppers, “free doggy swag” and an onsite animal adoption center. The whole shebang is free to enter, and if you have a Beer Book, your Freddy’s Bar coupon will also entitle you to one free beer.
The most fabulous Fidos will win prizes and, according to Freddy’s co-owner Donald O’Finn, “This year we’ll have an even higher stage to provide more space and superior pooch visibility plus a better sound system so no dog goes unheard.”
There will be parade emcees commentating on the puppers. Attendance and dog entry is free. Dog owners can register from 3:45 to 5:30pm day of at Freddy’s.
The fashion show itself will begin at 6pm and following its completion at 7pm there will be street performances by funk band The Push and Pull, after which there will be live music inside Freddy’s.
A portion of beer sales will go to The Sean Casey Animal Rescue.
