Family Fun, Helping Pets at Hound Dog Day Aug. 1

Hound Dog DayAn area law firm is inviting the entire community to take part in its annual Hound Dog Day.

Law firm McCandlish Lillard has been celebrating Hound Dog Day — the calendar opposite of Groundhog Day — for years.

Attorneys at the law firm started Hound Dog Day years ago as a corollary to Groundhog Day.

The saying went, “if the hound dog crossed the porch and drank from his water bowl, we would have six more weeks of of summer.” If he didn’t stop for a drink, then fall would come early.

McCandlish Lillard is holding the free event Saturday, Aug. 1 at Reston’s Lake Fairfax Park from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m.

The community is invited to come enjoy kids activities such as face painting, jugglers, and a photo booth. There will also be live music, food trucks and pet-related vendors. Leashed dogs are also welcome.

All net proceeds from the event will go to local dog rescue groups FOHA (Friends of Homeless Animals), Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, Mutt Love Rescue and The Shiloh Project.
