• The 6th annual Barktoberfest – Sat. 9/27/08 Noon – 6pm

        What do you call a day filled with live music, delicious treats, fun-filled games, interactive experiences, and fabulous felines and captivating canines for adoption? Well, at Friends of Homeless Animals, they call it Barktoberfest! This music festival/adoption event/fundraiser will be held on:

        Date: Saturday, September 27, 2008, from 12:00 – 6:00pm.
        Rain date is: Sunday September 28 12:00 – 6:00pm.
        Location: The outdoor amphitheater at Melodee Music
        46077 Lake Center Plaza, Sterling VA.

        Melodee Music invites everyone to pull up a lawn chair or lay down a blanket to enjoy live music at their outdoor amphitheater. Nine live bands will provide the tunes to accompany the day. Hot Food items, drinks, and fresh-baked items will be on sale, all proceeds benefit FOHA. Other donations will be gladly accepted. Children young and old can play games like “Mutt-Mutt Miniature Golf” and “Touchdown Football”. Let the inner artist emerge at the “Paint a Pet” Booth. And, just a few of the Captivating Canines and Fabulous Felines for adoption through FOHA will be on hand to meet and greet their adopting public — and perhaps even meet their new family.

        While the admission to the event is free, donations will be gladly accepted, and all proceeds will benefit dogs and cats awaiting adoption at Friends of Homeless Animals. For more information, please see:www.Barktoberfest.org
