Festival going to the dogs!

Date Posted: 2009-03-06

The D1 Pic Festival is going to the dogs, because the dogs are going to the festival.

It’s all about the dogs, a two-day festival sponsored by the Chamber of commerce and Industry in Chatan. D1 Pic is a dogs festival, or festival for dogs, taking place Mar. 14 and 15 at the Chatan Baseball Subground at Chatan park.

The D1 Pic Festival, now in its fourth year, says all breeds, ages and size dogs are eligible to participate in D1 Pic, which has numerous events on tap, including a flying disk dog show and ‘catch & go’, and a 50-meter race to determine the title ‘Fastest Dog on Okinawa.” The entry fee is ¥300 per owner for one day, regardless of the number of animals the owner brings to the D1 Pic festival. While advance registration is encouraged, dog owners can sign up at the reception desk on the days of events.

All dogs entering the D1 Pic Festival site, and all dogs participating in events, must be vaccinated against rrabies and distemper. Female dogs in estrus are not permitted. Dog owners are reminded to clean up after their dogs, bring water, and to keep animals on a leash. The D1 Pic Festival Executive Committee is not responsible for accidents that occur during the events.

Events begin each day at 10 a.m. and run through 5 p.m. Advance registrations may be made at Chatan Chamber of Commerce at 098-936-4646 (in Japanese).
