Talent Harvest Festival Parade and Booth

September 21, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join us at the Talent Harvest Festival!
Saturday, September 21st

Talent hosts a fun Harvest Festival in the fall bringing together a lot of local businesses and groups and organizing a parade through the local area.  FOTAS has participated for many years for this event, hosting a booth as well as bringing dogs to walk in the parade.  The weather’s often really nice for a parade and the leaves are just starting to change colors.  

We need help with the parade from 9am to 11am, either walking shelter dogs, walking your own lucky dogs, or holding lightweight signs and showing off our shelter to the public!

We’re also going to be present at our booth offering outreach and connecting with potential new volunteers.  Our canopied booth will have volunteers throughout the event in shifts from  9am to 11am, 11am to 1pm, and 1pm to 3pm.  We also have a tear down team from 3pm to 4pm that goes pretty quickly.  Volunteers are needed for each shift.

Email fotas@fotas.org if you’d like to sign up to help!
