This year we are pleased to feature:

In the area between the dance stage and the beer booth, trainers from Eyes for Tomorrow, who will be showcasing their puppies in training at our event this year. While all the puppies won’t be of Celtic descent, their coming to our Celebration gives them valuable social interaction and socialization and allows our patrons to snuggle some cute! Check out their Facebook Page, too! Throughout the day there will be 12 puppies in training and their handlers, come by for a snuggle and observe the cute!

We regret that we are unable to host the Barney Clydesdales this year, but we look forward to including them in future years.

Our board is currently looking for someone with a passion for critters to coordinate this area, we’d love to see it grow again and do awesome things, but those of us on the board currently just don’t have the bandwidth and time to devote to this. Please contact us at info(at)renoceltic(dot) org if you might be interested in this!
