General map/directions to the Fair Grounds:
The State Fair is a favorite of pet lovers, and it always generates a large number of adoption applications.
On the first Saturday of the fair (August 29th) we have secured the Pet Building Demo Area for the entire day. This is the grassy area just outside the Pet Building where we will be able to get on the microphone and tell everyone how GREYT greyhounds are and why they should consider adopting one. This is a GREYT exposure opportunity for GPA and greyhound adoption!
On the second Sunday (Sept 6th) we will spend the whole day in the pet building where we will have a double-wide bench with plenty of room for the hounds! It's a greyt opportunity to show animal lovers what greyhounds are all about. Everyone loves the fair, and it’s even better when there are a bunch of greyhounds there!
Stop by and see us on either Saturday!
We will need lots of volunteers for the fair days. If you would like to volunteer for a segment of time on either or both days, contact the GPA State Fair coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
