Woofstock dog festival
Sunday, August 26, 8 a.m., Johnson-Springview Park, no cover
There are no dogs alive who were there for the original Woodstock music festival. Good thing there’s Woofstock. Dogs and their humans are invited to share in the fun—and there’s so much more to it than just a parodic name. There are events Woodstock never dreamed of having, like a timed 5K run/walk. There are dog races, a costume parade, a pancake breakfast and lots of activities. Sure, there’s no Hendrix, Creedence or Joplin, but there may be Huskies, Collies and Jindos. If you’re at all like Diane Lane portraying Sarah Nolan in the film Must Love Dogs, you will not want to miss this genuine dog-a-palooza. 5480 5th Street in Rocklin, rocklin.ca.us/Woofstock2018.
