Pet Fiesta Returns to RTC for Furry Fun

If you’re looking for a new four-legged family member or interested in improving your relationship with a pet your own, the Pet Fiesta returns to Reston Town Center (11900 Market Street) on May 4. Local pet businesses, community members and animal rescue groups will be on-site to promote local adoption and educate owners about dog ownership.

The event kicks off with a Dog House of Style fashion show at noon. The latest canine couture will be modeled by rescue dogs, who will be up for adoption. Face painting and caricature artists will also be on-site during the fiesta, which begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m.

It’s hosted by Gooddogz.org, a Reston-based nonprofit that educates future dog owners about dog selection and care. The organization also supports rescue groups.

Last year, the Pet Fiesta drew more than 10,000 visitors, according to event organizers.
