Now here’s an event worth barking about! The Chariots of Fur Beach Run & Festival features a 5K run/walk and 1-mile Fun Run that’s totally dog-friendly. Is Ol’ Blue getting a little “muttin” top? Leash him up and bring him on down! Live music, contests, food trucks, dog demos, dogs available for adoption, activities for kids, massages, raffle prizes and a silent auction are featured. All proceeds benefit St. Francis Animal Hospital and its efforts to help pets in need of medical care.
10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, SeaWalk Pavilion, Jax Beach, for registration fees, go to chariotsoffur5k.org.
