Watch a movie with your furry friend, Saturday, June 13th at Hermon Dog Park. BYOB- Bring-Your-Own-Blanket, as we screen the family classic Beethoven, starring a lovable St. Bernard with lots and lots of slobber! Host, Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council will provide popcorn, water and other snacks. Friends of Hermon Dog Park will also be in attendance, celebrating the night with owners and their dogs. There will be community booths with free dog related giveaways.

The movie will start at 7:30 pm, so bring some blankets for you and your dog as we snuggle with our best friends under the stars. Park your car at the Arroyo Seco Parking Lot, and walk through the tunnel to the entrance of the dog park. Come socialize your dog prior to the movie, and meet others in our pet community!

(If you are going to use the dog park, your dog must be spayed or neutered)
