Dog Day @ Douglass Loop Farmers Market

Saturday, Aug. 11

2005 Douglass Loop • 314-6639
Free; 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Rocko’s Rewards, a local provider of all-natural, homemade dog treats, sincerely hopes that this coming Saturday in the Highlands, you’ll let the dogs out. Why? Well, it’s Dog Day at Douglass Loop Farmers Market, that’s why, and Rocko’s Rewards is the sponsor. Sara Beavin, a certified Red Cross pet first-aid instructor, will present free classes for pet owners on disaster preparedness and pet first-aid. Guest vendors Barkstown and Four Spoiled Dogs will have locally made dog accessories, while Rocko’s Rewards will have dog biscuits aplenty. Word on the street is that even humans like these biscuits. No kidding. There also will be a raffle drawing for a Rocko’s gift basket to benefit Shamrock’s Arrow Fund, and the usual great selection of local food and crafts. (Note: Please make sure your dog is on a leash.) —Kevin Gibson

The Belvedere
500 W. Main St.
$5; noon

Those of you who consider reality TV contestants to be celebrities — get out your autograph book and head downtown Saturday. The Urban Stampede is taking over the Belvedere, and B-list celebs abound! The Stampede is an “Amazing Race”-style challenge that will take place downtown for those interested in actually exercising. But the main action will be at the Corral, which opens at noon. There you can meet Kentuckians Mark and Bopper from “Amazing Race 20,” Sandy Burgin from “Survivor: Tocantins,” and Mary and David Conley from “AR 10 & 11.” At 6 p.m., there will be live music featuring “American Idol” stars Haley Scarnato, Michael Sarver and Lindsey Cardinale, and Jeff Fairchild from “Nashville Star.” All this needs is a little Kent and Vyxsin. —Sara Havens
