TENTH WAGAPALOOZA A GREAT SUCCESS
The Animal Care Center (ACC) of St. John celebrated Wagapaloozaís tenth anniversary on Saturday, May 22. As in the past five years, the extravaganza was held in the Winston Wells ball field in Cruz Bay. The ball field is a ten minute walk from the ferry dock so that visitors from St. Thomas could attend conveniently.
Wagapalooza is a one-of-a-kind dog show that could take place only on St. John. Categories for judging dogs donít in the least resemble AKC-approved categories, and this yearís events were announced on our posters and flyers so that dog owners could start preparing costumes or begin practicing tricks, smooches, leaps, and poses for photos.
Creative refreshments were offered, and raffles for island retreats, restaurants, and services were donated by generous individuals and businesses. You donít have to be a dog owner to enjoy the carnival atmosphere of St. Johnís leading fund raiser for the ACC.
