Weather holds up for all of these great weekend events.
Come out to Astronomy Night at FDR State Park Saturday night from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. est. CSU’s Coca-Cola Space Science Center will be there to talk about stars and our night sky.
Support some brave pups at the 75th Ranger Regiment K9 Warrior Pawrade Saturday afternoon in Woodruff Park. All dogs are welcome to come out and walk in the parade through Uptown. There will also be adoptable dogs available from PAWS, Tri County Animal Rescue and Benning Animal Shelter. A $10 donation will get you an American flag bandana for your dog! All proceeds go toward the 75th Regiment K9 Memorial.
“2nd H.O.O.A.H. Georgia is holding a Pawrade this weekend for the funding and construction of a bronze memorial statue to honor the K9 warriors for the 75th Ranger Regiment. We want to honor those K9 dogs who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom,” says Pawrade Coordinator Alicia Lively.
Our second highlighted event this weekend is the Wild and Scenic Film Festival. Watch kid friendly and environmental short films Saturday morning and afternoon at CSU’s Seaboard Depot in Uptown Columbus.
“We are bringing in films that have an environmental theme, a series of short films so anywhere from 7 minute films to 15 minute films. Saturday morning we’ll have films specific for kids – so environmental films geared for children. So that’s just really exciting. We’ve never done that before,” says Trees Columbus Executive Director Dorothy McDaniel.
