Join The Strong from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on September 11 & 12 for a fun-filled weekend all about canine friends! 

Meet Tango, Elmo’s new puppy, during a special showing of Sesame Street’s new special Furry Friends Forever at 1 p.m. in the Paychex Theater. Visit with local therapy dogs, and, Sunday only, learn about the AKC Fit Dog program with the Genesee Valley Kennel Club, Inc. and take a dog for a Fit Dog Walk. Join canine fun experts from Country Max to test out five of the most popular dog toys and vote for your favorite, then snap a photo at their photo opp. Take a plush dog for a walk in the dog park or a groom in the salon, then make a dog toy to take home to your furry friend.
