Things to do with Your Dogs in Chicago: West Fest Neighborhood Festival

While Chicago is filled with all types of neighborhood streetfests during the summer, our favorite one is West Fest. Maybe we're biased because this is our neighborhood festival, but this is also the most pet (and pit!) friendly festival we've been to. Besides the two music stages it also has breakdancing, graffiti exhibits, and a separate dog-themed area complete with dog baths and treats. 
Miss M can only take baths in the most dramatic fashion:
Afterwards, the pups were excited to spy the Fido to Go dog treat truck. They even got to eat it twice: lamb asiago flavor and bacon cheeseburger flavor. We found out Miss M's favorite flavor was whatever Mr. B was already eating.
As always, the pups were so excited to meet people, and they even met a lot of people who only knew them from the blog (thanks everyone for saying hi!). We also were able to spend some time with adoptable Ruby from Project Rescue (lower corner photo!). If you know anyone looking for a sweet, laid back pup, she would be a great fit!
Has anyone else been out at the street festivals? Or do you have other summer traditions with your pups?

OK, Wichita really needs to step up it's game because I am completely unaware of any street festivals!

It's really cool that there is a separate dog area with baths and treats. Lucky pups!

I've decide that the Mr. & the Mrs. need their own TV show. I'd watch it religiously!

Great photos, and thanks for including Miss Ruby in your write up!

What fun! I love street festivals but they are a bit much for my dogs most of the time. I do find it good practice to bring Fozzie by himself and let him get loved by all the humans, and try to remain calm with other dogs.

We haven't been to any yet this summer..it is so bloody hot here, we try to get out to green places whenever we can! Our good festivals take place mostly in the fall.
