Woofstock: A canine exposition in Largo

It's a groovy day of peace, love and all-things canine Saturday.

Grab a leash and head for Woofstock 2008 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Largo Central Park, 101 Central Park Drive.

The free event will feature more than 40 vendors, doggie contests, obedience demonstrations and more.

Organizer Krista Pincince, recreation program manager, said this is the fourth annual Woofstock, and every year it grows in popularity. Last year's event drew more than 700 people and 300 dogs.

The pups will compete for titles of best dressed, longest tail, longest ears and best kisses, among others.

Don't forget to wear your coolest '60s-themed clothes (and be sure to deck out your four-footed friends, too). Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

For details, call (727) 518-3016.
