You’ll be rocking around the Christmas tree and menorah as you ring in the most wonderful time of the year with friends and family! There will be food trucks and delicious treats, plus creamy hot chocolate to warm the heart and get you in the spirit. There will also be tons of fun for people and pups of all ages, including games, giveaways, an exciting scavenger hunt and more. Visit our various vendor booths while the kids have a blast riding the trackless train and jumping around in the holiday bounce house. And don’t forget to say hi to all of the shelter dogs and cats, who will be rocking their holiday sweaters and howling with holiday cheer!
You will not want to miss the enchanting shelter-lighting ceremony, which will brighten the shelter for all of the homeless pets waiting to find their forever families. And no celebration is complete without a visit from the big man in red. You’ll love witnessing the thrilling arrival of Santa “Paws” as he makes his grand entrance atop a City of North Miami Beach Police truck!
The event is free to attend and so much fun awaits – save the date and get ready to enjoy the best “paw”liday event of the year!
