Del Ray, one of the most dog-friendly neighborhoods in the region, highlights “Dog Days in Del Ray” during its May First Thursday. The monthly street festival takes place on May 5 from 6 p.m. to dusk along Mount Vernon Avenue.
Bring your favorite four-legged friend out to the Avenue for a variety of canine-themed activities for dogs (and their humans!). The event is free and open to all.
Participants are encouraged to bring items for the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria’s Community Pet Pantry and for in-shelter use, including (unopened) wet/dry food/treats for cats and dogs, kitty litter, puppy pads, pet toys, fleece blankets. They will also have a monetary donation box onsite. Donations will be collected at the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square, located at Mt. Vernon & Oxford Avenues.
Held the first Thursday from April to September along Mount Vernon Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, First Thursday is a series of free outdoor street festivals that bring the community together around a fun theme, benefiting a local nonprofit.
